Tell It To Me Boston Pride!

Tell It To My Heart

Multi-platinum recording artist Taylor Dayne's been keeping the beat of the LGBT community since 'Tell It To My Heart' hit the charts in 1987. Since then, her numerous hit singles, platinum albums and dance songs have kept her firmly in our hearts as well.

So mark your calendars NOW ladies because Taylor is coming to our Pride as the headliner of the Boston Pride Festival, Sunday, June 13.

The New York-born artist's three albums for Arista Records, Tell It To My Heart, Can't Fight Fate, and Soul Dancing, produced twelve Top 20 singles, among them the chart-topping "Love Will Lead You Back." Over the course of her career, she has sold more than 75 million albums and singles worldwide, garnering three Grammy nominations along the way. On her new album, Dayne shows off the versatility of her amazing pipes with the come-hither sensuality of "Kissing You," the dance-floor beat of "I'm Over My Head" and the reggae rhythms of "She Don't Love You" and "Dedicated."
