Atlanta Pride Festivities 2006

(OPENPRESS) June 21, 2006 -- Atlanta Pop Sensation Spring will kick off the 2006 Altanta Pride Festivities being held at Piedmont Park June 23-June 25. Spring's performance is very upbeat and creates an instant party atmosphere. She will hit the stage on Friday June 23, 2006 at 6:30 PM immediately following the opening ceremony.If you are looking for something fun, fresh, vibrant, hot and deliberate… You are in the right spot. Come aboard this sensational ride and watch this super star captivate the world. “You only get one shot at your first album” explains Spring, “so I have to sound great, my producers have to bring heat, and we have to say something when we make noise”!

When sticking with this model, you end up with the winning package “Spring” is bringing to the world.The 22-year-old hottie grew up in Detroit Michigan. She began singing at the age of 4-years old when she visited her grandmother’s church in Alabama. After the first day, she never stopped singing again. She would sing solos and lead songs in her church choir. The first talent show she entered she won singing “Believe In You And Me” by Whitney Houston.

Everyone knew she was a star; there was something extra special about Spring. At the age of 10 Spring decided she was dropping out of elementary school to become a professional singer, but to her dismay her mother stressed the importance of education first and made her continue school. Inspired by artists such as Mariah Carey, Steven Tyler, Res, Madonna, Christiana Aguilera, Donnie Hathaway, Janet Jackson, Destinys Child, and Whitney Houston, at the age of 19 Spring caught the first thing smoking and headed to Atlanta to pursue her singing career. Atlanta welcomed her with open arms and she found her true resting place, home of the new sound of the music Industry.

There, Spring has fit in and is able to blend her “HipPop” sound perfectly with the hard base lines home grown in the south. It is now time to raise the curtain and prepare to rise to the sounds of one of the most highly anticipated and tenacious entertainers the music scene has come across in a long, long time.Atlanta Pride is an annual event that is one of the largest FREE outdoor festivals in the City of Atlanta with attendance estimated at 300,000 for the weekendSpring Media Inquiries M.Scott404-483-2294 Direct
