In what will be his first "pride" performance, singer Adam Lambert will headline this weekend's Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival.

Lambert will take the festival's main stage Sunday at 8 p.m. off 11th Street and Ocean Drive.

The former American Idol contestant took questions about his time in Miami from fans and the media Saturday at Lummus Park.

"The energy's really high and everybody's feeling kind of unified," Lambert said. "I think that's going to be a very nice family feel for the show."

"People are really excited that our voices are being heard," Lambert said. "It's becoming main stream."

Although Lambert did not give any details about a new album on Saturday, he did say there is "something on the horizon."
