To Perform At HRC Gala Dinner
Sister Dottie S. Dixon and DJ Kimberly S will Host a “Singles Ward Dance” After-party
The Utah steering committee of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, today announced that singer/songwriter/pianist Spencer Day will perform at their sixth-annual “No Excuses” Gala Dinner on Saturday, May 8th.
The event begins at 6pm and will be held at the Grand America Hotel. It will be preceded by a VIP reception at 5pm and will conclude with a “Single’s Ward Dance” after-party hosted by Sister Dottie S. Dixon and DJ Kimberly S (who is also a black belt in karate). Colorado Rep. Jared Polis will keynote the dinner.
Called an “artistic vagabond,” Day was born in Utah, raised LDS in rural Arizona and currently lives in Los Angeles. His music draws on a number of inspirations including jazz, musical theater, cabaret, and folk, among others. Day has been compared to Michael Bublé and John Mayer, and his compositions to those of Cole Porter, Paul Simon, and Rufus Wainwright. Day’s performance will feature selections from his adventurous new album Vagabond (Concord Records), a Billboard Top 10 Contemporary Jazz Album, as well as past favorites from previous releases.
“This will be my first performance in Utah and what a great homecoming it is!” states Day. “My primary artistic goal is always to encourage unification and inclusion. I hope to help build a bridge between LGBT persons and the religion of my birth. I feel that music is a great means toward healing divides.”
“I’m sa’ honored ta host a single’s ward dance for these gay, bisexual, and transgendered boys and girls,” added Sister Dottie S. Dixon. “Especially with DJ Kimberly S spinning her magic, this party is one for the scrapbooks.”
