Chris Weaver: "California Soul"
From: Freeport, New York
Current City: Hempstead, New York
Chris is a worship leader by day and a drag queen by night. He grew up singing in the church because his mom was a Pentecostal preacher, but being gay, he never quite felt he could express his true self until he discovered drag. His drag persona is a gorgeous sassy woman named Nedra Belle. He performs weekly at the West End Lounge, hosting and singing live. Two years ago he had the opportunity to sing for Jennifer Hudson at a party for her Broadway show "The Color Purple," and she threw a shoe at him, which coming from their church background is the ultimate compliment.
