Drag songstress Cookie Diorio has a truly unique story to tell in a way that only she can. Her towering 7 foot silhouette is glamorous and commanding, and her voice matches its mightiness. She performs with a captivating physicality that could be described as aftershocks of the soul-shaking sounds that explode from her body. “When I sing gospel music something powerful takes over me. I am no longer just a singer or a drag queen, I am a conduit for the energy of whatever it is that holds the magic of those words and that music together,” says Cookie. “And for me, that is where the art of drag and gospel music collide.”
