'Empire' star Serayah headlines Club Silverstone's PRIDE street party in Tacoma on July 14

by MK Scott - SGN Contributing Writer

It was a year ago when I interviewed Mya, who was set to headline the PRIDE street party at Tacoma's Club Silverstone last year. Now that time has come again, and this time they've got nationally acclaimed singer/songwriter and actress Serayah, star of the hit TV show 'Empire.' With Club Silverstone's strongest lineup yet, this year's Pride street party promises to be one for the ages!

I got the chance to reach out to Serayah Ranee McNeill on July 2 by email to talk with her about music, pride and acting.

MK Scott: Serayah, Welcome to Tacoma! I know you are scheduled to perform at the PRIDE street party at Club Silverstone, What can we look forward to?

Serayah: New songs and getting to know Serayah vs. Tiana on 'Empire'!

MK: What does Pride mean to you?

Serayah: It's a celebration of being your true authentic self. Showing support without judgment or second thought. It's always amazing to see so much positive energy and people creating memories that last forever.

MK: You have been part of the cast of 'Empire' for the last three seasons. What has been the best part of being in the show?

Serayah: I have been able to reach a vast amount of adults and kids. And it's always amazing to see their reactions and know that I give them happiness every Wednesday lol!

MK: Who has been the most inspiring? Taraji, Jussie or Lee?

Serayah: Taraji has definitely given me advice. And just seeing her work is eye opening for me. There's so much creativity and assurance in her work that I aspire to have.

MK: What is next for you? Film, more music?

Serayah: Music! I'm dropping more music than I ever have and it feels so good! My new single is out now called 'So Good' produced by Jo Blaq and the video will be released in July as well! Album on the way.

MK: What advice would you tell youth about America under Trump?

Serayah: Don't be led into violent thoughts and actions. Have a heart, continue to care about others before your self. It's more rewarding that way. Also, let's stop with the racism. We are a world full of amazing people. Don't let old ignorance scare you from living your life and actually enjoying it.



The Club Silverstone PRIDE street party begins on Saturday, July 14th at 5pm. Hosted by none other than local Seattle drag favorite Honey Bucket. Featuring special performances by Beth Anne Sacks and Dutchess Beck! Back for another year of mixing and spinning on the outside stage, Kidd Madonny! With DJ sets by both DJ Yanni and our resident house DJ Midnight Mike - After Dark Entertainment!

The party moves inside at midnight and will be going until 2am. Tickets are $20.00 at the door starting at 2pm. 21+ only with a valid photo ID! Message Club Silverstone or call the club at (253) 404-0273 with any additional questions!
