Me, sharing chart space with Donna Summer and Barbara Streisand?

Yes, you've "read right"! Who would've ever "thunk it"!! Me... sharing chart space with Donna Summer (Especially since our dear Ms Summer has gone on) and Barbara Striesand! .
Say what now!?! How awesome!
My good friend-turned-family, Joe Gauthreaux, penned a song called THE URGE IN ME, for which I recorded the vocals. I must say, it SLAYS! (If you don't have it, get it here: the music video here:

Now, Not only has BILLBOARD MAGAZINE named Me as one of the Greatest Of All Time Top Dance artists...not only does THE URGE IN ME make My 3rd top 5 Billboard Dance Chart single within a year's time, but we're at #3 on the Billboard dance / club chart and have moved up to #37 on Billboard's Hot Dance / Electronic songs chart with Ms Summer & Ms Streisand just two steps below! (sigh)
What a friggin' honor! Jeesh!
I've just come home from performing 2 concerts and 2 pop-ups on the ALLURE OF THE SEAS Royal Caribean Cruise Line for Atlantis Events with My friend and roadie, Asia!
Dj Mike Nelson assisted Me on the 1 & 2's!!! CLICK HERE to see it :
OR Check it out on My FB page...
So much fun...for reals!!!!
2 weeks before that, I was in Australia tryina make it "do what it do"! Always a fun time in My other home! Folks clapped, danced, and sang along! Such an amazing exchange of wonderful energy!

God has been, and IS, so super gracious and merciful toward Me!
I'm going to sing his praises this coming Monday...February 6th, 2017 in Brooklyn.
I will be featured with My childhood friend, Pastor Terrance L. Kennedy and his choir.
The flyer has the info.

Finally! My very FIRST real EP coming for Christmas This Friday!


So, Many of you know that I've recorded over 95 singles in the past 20 years but have NEVER done an album.
Well, I'm getting close!
Coming THIS FRIDAY, in time for Christmas, is THE DAY THAT YOU WERE BORN; a Christmas EP with
House, R&B, Rock... "You Name It !!! " Hehehe! (Some of you will get that joke  ;-)  )
Anyhoo, you can CLICK HERE to listen to snippets of the project!
I hope you likeee!  ;-)
Blurb, credits, and tracklisting below:
title: The Day That You Were Born

producers: Juston "Jeriko" Moore , Inaya Day, J. Eliot Wilson
Instrumental composition : Jeriko
Vocal composition: Inaya Day 
* "Mary's Baby" written by Phillipa Rosalyn McClore
*Guitar on "Mary" by Sheldon Goode
Mixed by J. Eliot Wilson  and Inaya Day at Native Culture Studios

Blurb / About :
Just about every genre is well represented in this project... R&B, House, Gospel, Pop, Rock and more. Jeriko's instrumentals provide the perfect beds in which Inaya's lyrics and vocals can comfortably lie. From the plush ALL HAIL, to the rock inspired MARY, this project is certifiable. 
With the intention of bringing the attention back to the reason for Christmas, Inaya Day developed this project focused solely on the One whose birth is celebrated instead of just the holiday. Put it on repeat for the rest of your life! This project is timeless!

On stage with Robin S, Czion & Cory despite the threats at LA Pride Fest!

Sadness was felt. Concern was in the air. Determination and strong belief was evident in the massive audience and in our performances! We were all adamant about not letting hate and fear win!... and so, we attended, we sang, we danced, we praised, we remembered!
For our bethren lost in Orlando and for the failed attempt at our own event, (man caught with explosives and weapons in his car heading to LA Pride), One of the organizers, Jamie Awad, asked Robin S. and Me to "take them to church a capella".. and so we did!

What an awesome show and celebration of life, love, and freedom. Czion, Cory and I are also celebrating our 20 years in dance music together!... still makin' it pop! God is indeed great!

Friday night, I performed with My High School Gospel Chorus reUnion Choir. SO much fun to see and hear everyone again. As many of you know, I went to The Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School and Music & Art (The FAME school. The movie and tv show are about our school; started out in the old castle then we moved to Lincoln Center. Here are some pics and #Video for you to enjoy!

That's Me down on the right next to Victor Cook.
Here is a clip of Me leading a song:

(sigh). I've had an eventful, weekend and I look forward to what's coming!
NYC Pride, I'll see you on June 24th with DJ Grind. Doing our billboard top 10 track, ONE NIGHT IN HEAVEN. #Video Here:
I'll keep you posted!!!  :-)
A thousand blessings!

What a great weekend we had! Pics and Video inside!

.....So, I performed  for Albany Black & Latino Gay Pride festival AND after-party with My boys / dancers, Cory & Czion. I had My cousin (and Ny-O-Dae Music recording artist-My label), DeVonde, perform her song LIFE, as a surprise. The crowd loved it and sang along!

The boys and I even did a Celia Cruz song... YES... in spanish! Czion sang that with Me, as well as the reggaeton tune that I made with Mark Shine and Mike Cruz called, "Jump Up & Down".
It was so much fun!
Here we are doing the song in sound check.
The next day, Czion and I caught up with the amazing Crystal Waters back stage after her performace at Queens Pride. Needless to say, her show gave Life! Luv huh!

Just a couple of weeks ago, I was in My former place of residence, Dusseldorf Germany, singing with a live band.
Here I am singing Roberta Flack's, FEEL LIKE MAKIN LOVE, with Valerie Scott and Keith Elliott Munerlyn on background vocals.

Meanwhile, ONE NIGHT IN HEAVEN is #16 with a bullet on the Billboard Dance chart! Yippee. Great way to celebrate 20 years in House Music, huh!?!

" It was just on March 12th when STRANDED, Inaya's song with Dirty Disco, peaked at #3 on the Billboard Dance chart. What a way to celebrate 20 years in dance music.
