The world is filled with individuals that fantasize about their dreams and those that live them! Danny Noriega was an American Idol hopeful for both season six and seven, YouTube personality that appears as himself or in drag as Angel Baby or Adore Delano. He was a finalist for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 6 under his drag name, Adore Delano. The same evening that RuPaul’s Drage Race finale aired Adore Delano’s debut single “DTF” was released through YouTube and iTunes and only a few weeks later dropped an emotional ballad “I Adore You”. Her album titled “Till Death Do Us Party” was released on June 3, 2014 and has debuted at No. 59 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 Dance album on iTunes.
Although there are many singles and a few albums that have been released by drag queens, Adore Delano is an extremely promising entertainer and committed to being taken seriously in the music industry. During the album’s first week on iTunes, she managed to sale more than 5,000 copies of “Till Death Do Us Party”. Adore has had more success with this album than any other drag performer and is proving that there is a high possibility that crossing over into the mainstream market and moving beyond a primarily LGBT fan base would be a milestone to her journey. Adore Delano is a great testament to living your dreams without allowing barriers to discourage you from living those said dreams as at some point everyone must deal with negativity, ignorance, and ultimately going against the beliefs of others.
