Capital Pride Announces THIRD Headliner for the 2014 Capital Pride Festival.

WASHINGTON, DC — Capital Pride is pleased to announce Bonnie McKee as one of four featured headliners at this year’s Capital Pride Festival. The 39th Annual Capital Pride Festival takes place along Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3rd and 7th Streets.

You may not know her face yet, but you definitely know her work. Bonnie McKee is a singer and songwriter who has co-written songs for an array of A-list pop stars, including Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Carly Rae Jepsen, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, and Taio Cruz, racking up eight No. 1 singles, including Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and “California Gurls,” Spears’ “Hold It Against Me,” and Cruz’s “Dynamite” — in the process.

Now the girl whom Rolling Stone called 2011’s “Best Secret Weapon” is ready to step out as an artist in her own right with her single “American Girl,” an anthemic pop tune that showcases her powerhouse voice, knack for big choruses, and nostalgia-tinged lyrical point of view. “I really did fall in love in a 7-11 parking lot at 12 years old,” McKee says of the opening line of “American Girl.”

The U.S. Capitol has served as the iconic backdrop to the Capitol Stage for hundreds of performances from local and national entertainers, politicians, and activists. Since its inception, the Festival has grown and evolved, and this year is no exception, starting with extended evening hours to enjoy the U.S. Capitol as a background of a sunset dance party.

The Festival exhibit hours are 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. The Capitol Main Stage will go on until sunset, approximately 9:00 p.m.
