Chicago Pride Fest: Saturday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Sunday, June 22 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

With more than 7 million albums sold worldwide, six studio albums and seven tours, music superstar Mya is taking her smooth vocals and huge collection of hit singles to the stage this summer during Chicago Pride Fest. The international R&B idol, who also performed at Pride Fest in 2011, has a laundry list of popular songs, but none more popular than "Lady Marmalade."

"I think I'm very proud of the 'Lady Marmalade' collaboration that I did with Christina, Lil Kim, Pink and Missy," Mya told OK Magazine in May. "... It really was [my favorite single] from every aspect. From shooting the video to rehearsing to laying the song down to performing, meeting Patti LaBelle, as well. So yeah, I would say that that was the ultimate so far."

Mya's list of hits also includes, "My Love Is Like... .Wo," "Ghetto Superstar," and "Case Of The Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do)."

Mya performs the North Stage at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 22. Chicago Pride Fest, which is organized by the Northalsted Business Alliance, runs June 21-22 on Halsted Street between Addison and Grace. A $10 donation is recommended. The Chicago Pride Parade is the following Sunday, June 29 at noon.
