Ultra Nate, Kristina Maria to headline Pride Day in Winnipeg

Unlike previous years, the 2013 edition of Pride Day features three major headliners — a new record — that promise to get festival-goers shaking their booties.

Singers Ultra Naté, Kristina Maria and Vita Chambers are going to hit the stage at The Forks during the free outdoor festival on Sunday, June 2, which starts at 1:30 p.m. and runs until 6:30 p.m.

“We have three, which is a new record, we usually only have one … we usually can only afford one,” said a smiling Jonathan Niemczak, president of Pride Winnipeg, adding that past faves Canadian country singer Jerry Sereda and the Womyn of Pride are also back.

“It’s a great line-up.”

One of the three headliners is Ultra Naté, who was the main vocalist for the 1998 hit version of “If You Could Read My Mind” by Stars on 54 and has had a 20-year career in the music industry.

The other two are Kristina Maria and recent addition Vita Chambers, two rising Canadian stars with hit songs that are receiving lots of airplay across the country.

The show at The Forks is free.
