Rainbow on the Green
The annual Land Rover Houston Central’s Rainbow on the Green is a dance party of fabulous proportions celebrating GLBT-pride. Chad Pitt, from radio station MIX 96.5, emcees a program filled with GLBT and GLBT-friendly performers. Fans of reality television will recognize America’s Got Talent contestant Derrick Barry, who wowed judges and viewers alike with his spot-on embodiment of gay icon Britney Spears (see photo). Out vocalist Michelle Chamuel, runner-up on the fourth season of The Voice, will also take the stage. Known for her quirky androgynous styling and rich vocal ability, the Usher-mentored Chamuel impressed voters with her powerhouse renditions of David Guetta’s “Titanium,” Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” and Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors.” Also on tap is American Idol alum and season seven runner-up Blake Lewis. The soulful crooner gained an avid following for his impressive beat-boxing skills, which he expertly weaved into his renditions of pop standards.
