Pop singer Mika, known for his hit singles like "Grace Kelly" and "Love Today," will headline a free concert in Paris on May 21 to celebrate the recent legalization of same-sex marriage in France.

The concert was originally slated for May 17th, the International Day Against Homophobia, but had to be pushed to May 21 due to scheduling reasons. The celebration will now be held on the Place de la Bastille from 7pm to midnight and will be free to all attendees.

Gay marriage became legal in France on April 23 after a number of violent protests.

Mika, who was raised in Paris but now resides in London, recently released a music video for his latest single, "Popular Song," from his third album, "The Origin of Love." Since his breakout debut album, "Life in Cartoon Motion" in 2007, Mika had avoided questions about his sexuality, until finally revealing that he is gay in August of 2012.
