The London-born singer and actress Estelle is showing her love for the gay community this Pride season, performing at LGBT festivals in major cities like Houston, Boston and, of course, Chicago.

Best known for her huge hit single "American Boy" featuring Kanye West in 2008, the Grammy Award winning singer also collaborated with other musical artists over the years, including John Legend,, David Guetta and Mark Wyclef Jean.

And while Estelle just released her fourth studio album True Romance in February, lately she's been turning heads for a different reason: acting. The 35-year-old singer and actress made a successful guest appearance on the hit Fox TV show Empire, singing the duet version of her single "Conqueror" with Jussie Smollett.

"It was always absolutely this song," Estelle told Billboard Magazine. "I think the producer had only heard this record, but it also made perfect sense; it's perfect for what [Jamal] goes through."

Estelle performs the Chicago Pride Fest Main Stage at 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, June 21. Pride Fest, which is organized by the Northalsted Business Alliance, runs June 20-21 on Halsted Street between Addison and Grace. A $10 donation is recommended. The Chicago Pride Parade is the following Sunday, June 28 at noon.
