BeBe Zahara Benet, the winner of RuPaul‘s Drag Race Season 1, needs your help to fund her ‘The Return to Savage Beauty’ album release and tour. She launched a Kickstarter campaign today to raise $18,000 to get her project off the ground and “into your ears, your TVs, your cities, heck even in your boombox – do those still exist anymore???”
Depending on the amount you donate, you could receive a signed copy of the album, a Skype call with her, free entry to any of her shows for a full year, or even a personal show at your house! According to the Kickstarter page, the money raised “from this campaign will be used to cover manufacturing, distribution, marketing, videos, staging, touring expenses, among other costs.”
We’ve already donated to the project, and can’t wait to have our one-on-one Skype call with her, but now it’s your turn! Check out the information below and hop on over to Kickstarter to help her out!

Here’s the full scoop about the project via the Kickstarter page:
Help me take this musical journey into your ears, your TVs, your cities, heck even in your boombox – do those still exist anymore??? I’ve been dipping in and out of studios for the past two years and I know some of you have been thinking: ‘wait, has she been on vacation in Milan, San Tropez?,’ – Honey, I wish.
The truth is, a girl has been trying to make a coin. You know, the usual: doing shows throughout the country, putting on productions, and you know, being in charge of the girls. But seriously, I have spent the past two years in the studio cultivating my sound because I wanted to give my best. I wanted to elevate my game! There is so much more to me than the usual schtick and if you ride with me on this journey, me, BeBe Zahara Benet will turn the party out!
Music has always been my focus and because of that, this year I plan to put out the most sickening album and tour combination that you have ever seen! – Ooooooh… Just when you thought you knew it… Uh uh honey, you’re gonna be dippin’, twerkin’ and poppin’ and I’ll be giving you that tribal realness that will have y’all recreating that dance scene from “Coming to America.” 2014 needs a #Face lift (“Face” now available on iTunes – just saying) and who else is better for the job than your very own Dr. Benet – taking new patients and pledges.
I’m grateful to all my supporters who have been with me through thick and thin. I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am if it weren’t for all of you. I have my best performances when my fans give me life and y’all KNOW you give me life! So, again I want to give my best and I need YOU, my supporters to give me LIFE honey!
Here’s where you come in: I’m looking to launch my album and concert tour in 2014. The money we plan to raise from this campaign will be used to cover manufacturing, distribution, marketing, videos, staging, touring expenses, among other costs. Now you know a girl don’t have that Oprah coin yet and being an independent artist, she needs to take what she can get, honey.
But wait a minute! There are some FAAAAAAAAABULOUS perks to this in exchange for those coins. Every little bit helps. Whatever you give gets us closer to the finish line. I cannot wait to have all you all share in this experience with me. Thank you so much and see you at the top!
