Inaya Day, perhaps best known for her vocal work on house music tracks, such as, "Horny '98" by Mousse T, and her cover version of "Nasty Girls" by Vanity 6, returns for Chicago Pride Fest 2019.
"I've always been endeared to Chicago because it reminds me so much of New York," Day told GoPride.com in 2017, before headlining Market Days. "When I think of Chicago, I think of the birth of House Music, Frankie Knuckles, the Warehouse after which house music is named, and I think of the fun that I have when I go to the Chosen Few festival with the legendary Terry Hunter. I had a chance to live in Chicago for a couple of months when I was touring with 'The Wiz' revival with Stephanie Mills and some of the other original cast members. I loved it and hated to leave. Winter was brutal, but worth it."
Inaya Day performs the Roscoe Nissan Partners of Progress Stage at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 6.
The 39th annual Northalsted Market Days, which is organized by the Northalsted Business Alliance, runs Friday, August 6 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday, August 7 and Sunday August 8 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Halsted Street between Belmont and Addison.
