The Steering committee for the 4th Annual Seattle Red Dress Party, benefiting Seattle non-profits working with those living with HIV and AIDS announced today that legendary singer Deborah Cox will make her Seattle debut headlining the upcoming event on 2/18/12. While singing with Celine Dion, Cox was discovered by the infamous Clive Davis and instantly signed to Arista Records. A multi-platinum selling and a multi-talented entertainer, Cox has earned three Juno Awards, conquered the R&B and pop charts, including six top-20 Billboard R&B singles, an impressive ten #1 hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart and the lead role in Elton John and Tim Rice’s Broadway musical, Aida. Deborah will be returning to Broadway in 2012 where she will portray the legendary Josephine Baker in Josephine. Joining Cox will be local DJ sensation DJ Brian Gorr. “DJ Brian Gorr is a crowd favorite and a legend in the LGBT club scene, of course he is the perfect fit for this community centered event” said Seattle Red Dress Party, Executive Director, Sam Galano. DJ Almond Brown will open the night and Seattle’s most beloved drag superstar, Gaysha Starr, will once again grace the stage and host the 2012 event.
