Ada Vox

Ada Vox is an accomplished vocalist, songwriter, and drag queen who found success and pushed boundaries as a contestant on the hit singing competition series American Idol, becoming the first drag artist to place in the top 10 in the show’s history. Ada most recently appeared on Queen of the Universe, the brand-new international drag singing competition, and finished as the runner-up.


Thea Austin

As a powerful vocalist, producer, lyricist, and international performer, Thea Austin’s music defies categorization and crosses all boundaries. She has been fronting bands, among them the Pop/Dance group SNAP, and honing her vocal skills since she was in her early teens. After Michael Jackson witnessed Thea work the stage, he asked her to be his opening act for the Dangerous Tour and HBO Special, where she played to more than 70,000 fans nightly. When she is not singing, Thea is actively involved with charity work and the fight against HIV/AIDS.
