Singer Frenchie Davis performed over the weekend at the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force's 25th National Conference on LGBT Equality in Atlanta.

The five-day conference, titled Creating Change, is the largest annual gathering of activists, organizers and leaders in the gay rights movement.

The 33-year-old Davis, a contestant on the first season of NBC's talent contest The Voice, publicly came out gay last year in an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

At Creating Change, Davis performed Love's Got a Hold on Me, her first single from her debut album.

“It's so wonderful to see all the young people here,” she told the crowd. “You all are the reason that I chose to be out. Because it is important that you see people in the public eye who are not ashamed of who they are. It is okay to be true to you. And you don't have to apologize to any mother-fucking-body.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
