Hot Stuff

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 queens A’Keria Chanel Davenport, Soju, and Silky Nutmeg Ganache spent a day volunteering at LGBTQ organization The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization. The queens participated in a very timely discussion about mental health and online bullying where they shared their different experiences both as bullies who were projecting their own unhappiness onto others and being bullied for who they are. Following the discussion, the queens participated in training to become crisis hotline volunteers. It is no secret that RuPaul’s Drag Race has served as a platform to discuss these important timely issues facing the LGBTQ community and working with The Trevor Project gave these queens an opportunity to further shine a light on these topics. The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) young people.

Decca and Republic Records announce the release of two star-studded duets, to appear on the brand-new album ‘JUDY.’ The Original Soundtrack which coincides with the release of the highly-anticipated feature film in which Renée Zellweger stars as ‘Judy,’ is set for release globally on September 27th. The film is based on the true story of Judy Garland’s final concerts in London in the late 1960s.  

Academy Award winner Renée Zellweger is joined by Sam Smith for a totally unique version of one of Garland’s best-loved numbers, ‘Get Happy,’ and teams up with Rufus Wainwright for a beautiful rendition of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ – both newly-recorded especially for the album.  

Zellweger brings her utterly distinctive vocals to both tracks, and her phenomenal musical performance shines throughout the album. 

‘JUDY’ the album features Renée Zellweger’s breath-taking recordings of Judy Garland’s award-winning and most popular numbers, which have become some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including ‘For Once in My Life’, ‘Come Rain or Come Shine’ and ‘Over the Rainbow’, all perfectly capturing the moving intensity of Garland’s electrifying performances. 

Set for global release on 27th September 2019, coinciding with the U.S. nationwide release of the film, ‘JUDY’ the album marks 50 years since Judy Garland’s premature death in 1969, and 80 years since she shot to teenage stardom in The Wizard of Oz in 1939, and will be released on the singer’s original record label, Decca.
