Burbank, CA (PRWEB) January 9, 2006
Q Television Network (See OTCBB Other: QBID), America's groundbreaking network for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered individuals (GLBT), has announced today that Gioia Bruno, the former lead singer of Exposé, will be making special appearances on two of the network’s programs with revealing in-depth personal interviews. Gioia will first visit with Honey Labrador and Scott Withers and entertain viewers live on “Brunch,” Tuesday, January 17th at 1:00 PM EST/10:00 AM PST. QTN subscribers can get a second dose of the dance diva singing her heart out when she hobnobs with Jack E. Jett, live on the Friday, January 20th episode of “Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett,” which airs at 10:00 PM EST/7:00 PM PST.
In the late eighties and early nineties, Gioia was a member of the Arista Records pop group Exposé, which released several blockbuster multi-platinum selling albums and spawned 8 Billboard "top-ten" hit singles such as “Let Me Be The One” and “Seasons Change.” In 1991, Gioia left Exposé to recover from an inoperable benign throat tumor. Now, fully recovered, Gioia is writing and performing the music her soul has been singing for years. Gioia, one of the hottest performers on the scene today, comes to Q Television Network after headlining gay pride events, circuit parties and dance clubs around the world. The dance diva’s new club anthem “Why Did You Call Me?” is currently featured on the chart-topping Kimberly S. CD “Global Groove.” The single “Why Did You Call Me?” is soon-to-be released throughout Europe and the U.S. by Mix2Inside Records.
Many QTN viewers will know Gioia from her Billboard “top-ten” dance club single “From the Inside.” The track, produced by Junior Vazquez, was featured on the “Queer As Folk Season 3” series and soundtrack. Gioia recently released her full-length solo album “Expose This” on KOCH Records to rave reviews. The CD features Billboard dance chart hit “Be Mine” and club favorite “I Was Made For Loving You.” Gioia’s “Wreckin’ My Nerves,” produced by Chris Cox, was featured on the “White Party USA Vol. 2.” CD and was charted by some of the most influential DJs, as one of the top-ten dance club hits of 2004. Gioia, presently working on her follow-up album is performing in Hollywood, CA on Saturday, January 14th at the grand opening of Fusion at Forbidden City. http://www.fusion-la.com For more information on Gioia visit http://www.gioiabruno.com.
“Brunch” on Q Television Network is the first live morning daily talk show created specifically for the LGBT and gay-friendly progressive community. Ninety percent talk show, with a touch of theatrics, hosts Honey Labrador of “Queer Eye for the Straight Girl” and Scott Withers live in lofts across the hall from one another. Honey brings her cooking expertise and modeling history to add lesbian chic, while Scott’s zany, gay flair combined with his passion for news and politics allows “Brunch” to run the gamut of issues and interests that are important to the diverse LGBT community.
A nightly talk show like nothing you’ve ever seen, “Queer Edge with Jack E. Jett” takes comedy to a whole new level. Host Jett focuses on pop culture and subculture with a cutting edge that is dynamic, witty and downright zany. The show covers everything from arts and news to celebrities and Internet subcultures – all from a refreshing GLBT perspective. “Queer Edge” gives viewers a truly out-of-this-world experience as they are launched into the outlandish conversations between Jett and his hosts. Jack E. Jett's “Queer Edge” encompasses all that is queer in the world of counter-culture; in an effort to show that the word “queer” is more that just a term for gays.
