Frenchie Davis, singing competition veteran, decided to come out of the closet and confess to the world that she’s been dating a woman for the past year.

“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.”

The singer is best known for her Broadway performance of “Rent” and traveling musical “Dreamgirls.”

She proudly supports the gay community and will be performing this weekend at the Chicago Pride Festival. She’s also working on a new album that she says is going to make people dance.
