BoA, the South Korean top pop star who is now active in the United States, performed on the Main Stage of the San Francisco Pride Monday amid thunderous applause from spectators.
She sang “I Did It for Love,” the flagship song of her U.S. debut album, “Eat You Up,” and “Energetic.”
The San Francisco Pride Parade is a festival held in June each year in the Californian city to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people. It is one of the most famous and best-attended pride parades in the world.
BoA, 22, expressed satisfaction with her performance, saying it was a surprise.
“The SF Pride stage was a surprise itself. I had a good time there,” she said in a Twitter posting.
BoA, who is struggling to repeat her success in Japan in the United States, has signed a contract with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the No. 1 Hollywood entertainment agency.
Under the agreement, within North America CAA is representing BoA in all areas, including music, film and merchandising. The agency is mulling a U.S. tour in the second half of the year.
BoA released her U.S. album on March 17 amid high expectations.
