Pop star Charli XCX will kick off L.A. Pride 2021 tonight with a free Thrive with Pride Concert, live streamed exclusively on TikTok. Charli spent last year working on new tracks by sharing and collaborating with her fans on Zoom. The resulting new album, How I’m Feeling Now received critical acclaim, and singles in her signature “hyper-pop” style are getting well over one million views online. Charli XCX is best known for her collaboration with rapper Iggy Azalea on the 2014 song Fancy, which finished the year as one of the best-selling singles worldwide and was nominated for two Grammy Awards. Rounding out the show, up and coming LGBTQ+ artists from across genres will be making their L.A. Pride concert debuts.
