I don't know how many of you were watching RuPaul's Drag Race UK....but Divina De Campo, or as I call her the big DDC, nearly won the season...coming in runner up!!! I thought for sure she would have this. I mean her runways and creations were spectacular. But we'll take runner up. I by far enjoyed the UK version...so much more campy and less fishy.
Divina De Campo started drag in 2005, where she hails from Brighthouse, Westchester, who has slowly built a loyal fanbase. I adore Divina's style...nothing like old school drag, with a huge pinch of glamour,huge lashes and a approximate painted face!!! Her style reminded me of my own. Her drag name is Italian for Divine, who is an inspiration for her. She regularly performs at Kiki in Manchester's Gay Village. In January 2016, De Campo appeared on The Voice, auditioning with the song "Poor Wandering One" from The Pirates of Penzance. One of the judges being her idol Boy George was on that season Despite none of the judges turning their chairs for her, George later expressed regret for not picking her. In December 2016, De Campo starred in The Ruby Slippers, a play that explores issues of identity and prejudice in the LGBT community. In 2017, De Campo was a part of a campaign to support the George House Trust, a charity supporting people living with HIV. De Campo hosted Superbia's Drag Queen Story Time, in which she read stories to young children. Then in August 2019, De Campo was announced as one of the 10 queens to be competing in the first series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, where Divina won four challenges and finished as the first runner-up. Divina De Campo is the stage name of Owen Farrow, and is known for his high soprano and 4-octave range, When not touring, recording or filming, Divina enjoys a quiet life with his husband.
Here's a clip preview of her upcoming song. I think we know from this season who will be going on to bigger things. I only hope she does some US appearances.
And her amazing Voice appearance.
