The new holiday album, Christmas Queens 3, the latest collection featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race girls giving their own spin to some of your favorite holiday classics—like Manila Luzon, Alaska and Peppermint turning “We Three Kings” into “We Three Queens.”
It’s drag so there are plenty of campy moments throughout the album, but it ends with a beautiful rendition of “Silent Night” sung by our favorite squirrel friend, Michelle Visage.
If you saw the Christmas Queens tour or heard Visage during her Seduction days, you know she can sing, but here she has us clutching our Christmas pearls as she takes the holiday classic to soaring new heights.
Not only that, but we are used to seeing Visage with her Drag Race family, but in this new music video viewers will see Mother Michelle be an actual mother as she has some holiday craft time with her husband and children around the Christmas tree.
If this video doesn’t touch you then your heart must be made of coal. And if you are having trouble getting into the holiday spirit after this horrible year, then this clip will have you hanging stockings and breaking out the Christmas ornaments in no time.
Not only is there a new Christmas Queens album, but the squirrel friends also hitting the road to spread holiday cheer with a brand new Christmas Queens tour hosted by Visage.
This year’s group of girls features Christmas Queens alumni and newbies including Alaska Thunderfuck, BenDeLaCreme, Bob The Drag Queen, Ginger Minj, Ivy Winters, Jackie Beat, Jiggly Caliente, Jinkx Monsoon, Katya, Manila Luzon, Peppermint, Phi Phi O’Hara, Sharon Needles, Sherry Vine and Thorgy Thor.
A 60-minute Christmas Queens concert special has also been released, on VOD and digital streaming platforms, so you can relive the merriment and joy of the last tour—and prepare yourself for this year’s festivities when the Christmas Queens tour comes to your town.
