Jake Zyrus will be performing at the NYC Pride March, one of the biggest events in the world celebrating the LGBT community.
The event, which will be held this June 27, will be the first time he will perform as Jake Zyrus in a Pride event with his "transition voice."
"First ko po basically na magpe-perform sa ganoon kalaking Pride event sa ibang bansa. Siyempre nandoon 'yung a little bit of nervous na nararamdaman ko po kasi first time din basically na makikita ng karamihan me as Jake Zyrus and hearing my new song and my new voice, my transition voice, but at the same time excited po. So very thankful," he said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
Since travel restrictions are still imposed due to the pandemic, Jake will be performing his new single "Fix Me" virtually.
The singer said he hopes to inspire with his performance especially to people who are afraid to come out to the people around them.
"When I do this ang lagi ko pong naiisip is, it’s for that someone out there na walang voice na hindi makapagsalita, na hindi makapag-come out, or surrounded by toxic environment. Nakikita ko po na there’s someone out there that will see this and will be like, ‘I wanna be like that someday. I want to be free like that.'," he said.
The NYC Pride March will be shown on ABC7NY at 12PM EST this Sunday.
You can also stream Jake's newest international release "Fix Me," which is now available on all digital platforms worldwide.
