Washington, DC – Singer-songwriter Steve Grand will perform at the Capital Pride Heroes Gala on June 3. The Gala will be held at the Carnegie Library, 801 K Street, NW, at 7:00 pm and will honor outstanding leaders and activists in the LGBTA community.

“I am truly honored to be performing at the Heroes Gala,” said Grand. “There is a great long list of heroes to thank, not only for this year, but for the last 40 years of LGBT advancement that we celebrate this night. I’m humbled to play any role at all in this event.”

Steve Grand released his aptly titled debut album “All American Boy” on March 23, 2015 and the following week it entered at 27 on the Billboard Chart.
