Cher's having a big year. She just finished recording her new album (to be released September 24 on Warner Bros. Records), she's scheduled to perform on June 18 on the season finale of NBC's The Voice, and her documentary on her mother, Dear Mom, Love Cher, is coming out on Lifetime next month.
But hold on to your Bob Mackie headdress: NYC Pride has just announced that Cher will be performing at the 2013 Dance on the Pier on June 30.
"NYC Pride is thrilled to welcome Cher to the stage of this year's Dance on the Pier! Her performance will be one of the most memorable in the history of this world-class party," says Chris Frederick Managing Director of NYC Pride in a release. "Now in its 27th year, the Dance on the Pier continues a proud tradition of partnering with all-star talent to create a high-quality event that raises funds to support local LGBT non-profits and New York City's annual Pride festivities."
Artists have included Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Hudson, and Cyndi Lauper have all been part of the event in year's past. But it's motherfucking Cher this time. Cher. There ain't no fashionably late to this ball.
