Kicking off at 9 AM, Halston will be a featured vocalist on the Adams Davy AXS float and is excited to spread holiday cheer to her native community of Houston.
“Spending the holidays in Houston is truly a magical experience with some of my favorite memories of the season anchored right here in this city. I’m excited to join the Thanksgiving Day parade thanks to the Adams Davy AXS float. The Adams Davy Agency provided me with the tools and access to try new opportunities. It was an important chapter of discovery that was necessary in order for me to land exactly where I am today. Happy Thanksgiving and happy holidays.”

As an emerging pop artist, Halston already has incredible achievements under her belt. Recently, she opened for Rico Nasty in Houston and also performed at Kentuckiana Pride alongside a lineup featuring Todrick Hall and Neon Trees. Reaching over one million streams on her summer smash Girls, Halston recently teamed up with DJ Riddler to create a pounding dance remix of the breakthrough track. DJ Riddler, an award winning producer behind remixes for Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, Drake, Jason Derulo, Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey, P!nk, Pitbull, etc., was the perfect match for Halston on this release.

Halston’s summer smash Girls landed perfectly between a mix of Ava Max, Dua Lipa and Lizzo on playlists empowering listeners to hit the town with their favorite female squad. Written by Halston and Jesse Barrera (Tori Kelly & US the Duo), her signature sass shines through in this flirty, confident single.
Editor-in-chief of Off the Record blog, Tom Neil, raved about Halston’s most recent release Girls. “It’s always good when I get to hear music like this that’s fresh and just has a nice vibe. It’s not just music. It’s a mood, it’s fun and it’s something to dance to.”
Halston kicked off 2021 achieving a new milestone in her career when she landed two tracks in the Top 20 on Billboard. Those songs were both featured on the e.l.f. Cosmetics holiday album E.L.F. the Hauls. The project was a monumental streaming success acquiring over 13 million plays on Triller which parlayed these releases onto the Billboard “Top U.S. Triller” Chart. Halston also directed the social media launch by premiering the project via an Instagram Live to e.l.f Cosmetics’ 5.7 million followers. In addition, Girls joins her previous releases Pinnacle and Teach Em as a milestone single surpassing over one million streams on Spotify. American Songwriter Magazine praised Halston for crafting "one of the year's boldest should-be-smashes." Debbie Mazella at Magic 98.3 WMGQ-FM (New Jersey) said, "Get ready to be blown away by the infectious sound."
