Frenchie Davis: ‘I Wasn’t Out … But I Wasn’t In’
June 22, 2012 by Carolyn Simon, Deputy Director of Digital Media
Singer Frenchie Davis is talking publicly for the first time about her relationship with a woman.
“I wasn’t out before the relationship, but I wasn’t in,” she told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I dated men and women, though lesbians weren’t feeling the bisexual thing. Now I’m in love with a woman I think I can be with forever.”
Davis is a friend of the Human Rights Campaign - she was the opening act at last month’s Atlanta Dinner and has also performed at HRC dinners in North Carolina, Colorado and New England.
She’s best known for being a contestant on season 2 of “American Idol” and season 1 of “The Voice.” She had a four-year run in the Broadway musical “Rent” and her debut single will be released this summer.
The main reason why Davis is in the news is because she’s performing at three pride events this weekend. She is no stranger to performing for her LGBT fans.
“The gay community is my most loyal fan base. Whenever an opportunity presents itself, I jump at it,” she told the Post-Dispatch.
