One of the most popular songs by lesbian artist Saara Aalto has been chosen as Pride in London official anthem for 2019.
Written by the Finnish-born singer, Dance Like Nobody’s Watching encompasses the true meaning of Pride, encouraging everyone to live their lives as though ‘nobody’s judging who you love’.
The Finnish born star moved to London in 2016 and has since become one of the UK’s most prominent LGBTI artists.
Saara Aalto is best known for her high-profile success as X Factor UK runner-up, Dancing On Ice finalist and Eurovision Song Contest finalist, as well as her recording deal with Warner Music.
‘London is the most exciting city in the world and I am so proud to call it home,’ Aalto said.
‘It fills me with joy when I think of the opportunities the capital has afforded me and to have achieved so many things as an out lesbian and as my true self is so empowering.’
Aalto will play Pride in London day the next 6 July.
‘I have performed at Pride in London for the past two years on the Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square Women’s stages and it is such a joyful event, filled with love. Having my song as the official song for Pride in London 2019 is such an honour and I am so proud to represent my community in this way.’
The singer will be performing Dance Like Nobody’s Watching at the Pride In London 2019 Gala Dinner. She’s also the first artist due to perform on both the Trafalgar Square Stage Leicester Square Women’s Stage.
