Drag Hotspot Lips' Nicolette Hosts a Salute to the Women of Country, Dressed as Either Dolly or Reba
This is Nicolette's favorite Reba song. She recorded this holiday song in 1997 for the Salvation Army. "I love that song. It's got a great big choir, and it's got a great message to it."
"Turn on the Radio"
Nicolette says it's an "uptempo, fast, sassy song."
"I Will Always Love You"
Nicolette defines this as a classic, "heartbreaking song."
This gospel tune is one of her favorites as well.
John Lennon's "Imagine"
Of this cover, Nicolette says, "it's absolutely beautiful."
We asked the performer about her worst stage tale. She said that once, dressed as Dolly and walking out onstage, she hit a rough spot on the floor and fell flat on her face. "My knee was bleeding through my panty hose, my wig was falling off my head. There's no way to recover from that." And the worst part, someone she'd just stated seeing, came to see her perform for the first time. "Then for my entrance, I eat it," Nicolette laughs. "But the show must go on."
As for who she'll be dressed as tonight? Probably Dolly. But you won't know unless you go.
Salute to the Women of Country on November 14 and Dinner with the Divas on November 15 at Lips, 1421 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Shows start at 7:45 p.m. Visit lipsusa.com for tickets.
