Kim Petras Powers Though Sound Issues To Give Inspired LA! Pride Performance Review + Photos: Kim Petras @ LA! Pride 6/9/18
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… The first “victim” of technical sound issues was the bubbly pop princess Kim Petras.
Kim, who is considered to be the youngest person to undergo gender confirmation surgery, was so excited to share her music with the LA! Pride crowd that she expressly stated the same as soon as she took the stage.
Her music is as fun as it gets. Her break out singles “Heart To Break” and “I Don’t Want It At All” are earwigs for anybody who enjoys some summery pop tunes. It’s Katy Perry circa “Firework” x 2.
So when sound cut out in the middle of her set, and Kim was left stranded on stage wondering was going on, it dimmed the brightness of her smile a tad and had people in the audience scowling because their joy had been interrupted. Even when the sound seemed to have been sorted, it dipped out again, frustrating the crowd even more especially during the performance of “Heart To Break”
Not to be deterred, Kim wouldn’t let the setbacks stop her, and she would resume “Heart To Break” a-cappella to finish what she started. It was a moment that revealed not only her professionalism, but also her sheer determination and perseverance, and certainly earned the respect … mad respect … of this critic …”
