Singer Frenchie Davis came out of the closet just in time for this year’s gay pride celebrations. She revealed to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that she has been dating a woman for the past year.
“I wasn’t out before the relationship, but I wasn’t in,” she said. “I dated men and women, though lesbians weren’t feeling the bisexual thing. Now I’m in love with a woman I think I can be with forever.”
She will be performing at two Pride Day festivities; one in St. Louis and another in Chicago, this weekend. “The gay community is my most loyal fan base. Whenever an opportunity presents itself, I jump at it,” she said. “I love the gay boys.”
The R&B vocalist also revealed plans to debut her new single “Love’s Got a Hold on Me” from her upcoming album.
Davis is best known as a contestant on the second season of American Idol, a semifinalist on The Voice and for her Broadway performances in Dreamgirls and Rent.
