Multi-faceted entertainer Todrick Hall graces the Market Days stage on Sunday, Aug 8. as the annual street festival returns in 2021.
“I did not realize how big of a deal Market Days is. When I went there (for) the first time, I saw how massive it is. And I’m sure this year’s Market Days will be epic as well,” Hall told GoPride.com. “I’m so excited to be back, doing things in the community. It’s so great to be back in the system, doing things for the community, performing.”
The singer, rapper, actor, director, choreographer, and social media personality rose to prominence on and after his appearance on American Idol.
Hall, 36, celebrated Pride with the release of his new album, Femuline, on June 8. The album was entirely written by Hall, with production from Grammy-winning Wiidope (Nicole Scherzinger, Ciara), and Jeeve (Bruno Mars, Britney Spears).
Additionally, Hall was joined by a fierce collection of collaborators, including the legendary Chaka Khan, Brandy, Nicole Scherzinger, Tyra Banks and TS Madison.
In June, Hall unveiled a video for album track “Rainin’ Fellas,” an homage to the Weather Girls’ classic, “It’s Raining Men.” Hall co-directed and creative directed the visual with Richy Jackson, best known for his work with Lady Gaga, at the helm as choreographer.
