Chicago, IL —
The fabulous and fierce Nina Flowers, voted "fan favorite" on the first season of ‘RuPaul's Drag Race,' returns to Chicago for two performances Saturday, May 8 at Spin Nightclub
Jorge Flores, known as Nina Flowers, was born in Puerto Rico and now lives in Denver, Colorado with his partner Antonio. Nina got her start while attending beauty school in Puerto Rico and has been performing for 15 years. She is known professionally as a makeup artist, entertainer, DJ and producer.
Drawing inspiration from European Rock Artist, Nina Hagen, the 35-year-old entertainer is quite distinctive with a muscular physique, tattoos and edgy costumes.
"I was heavily influenced by one of my favorites, Nina Hagen. Her character and her drama when performing drew me in," Flowers told ChicagoPride.com last December. "I also found Boy George, the Eurhythmics, and Pete Burns, to name a few very inspirational figures that added to my drag character."
Before gaining national attention on ‘Drag Race,' the Puerto Rican drag queen developed a solid following with live performances and numerous YouTube videos. Chicago fans watched Flowers grow through the Miss Continental Pageant.
In December 2009, Flowers in collaboration with DJ Ranny released her first dance single "Loca", which is available for purchase through iTunes and Masterbeat. The single reached its highest spot (#15) on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play the week of January 30.
Flowers will appear at Spin Nightclub
, 800 W. Belmont, to perform and promote her hit single "Loca" during a live show at Midnight at 1 a.m. She will be signing autographs at a "meet and greet" immediately following the last performance.
Tickets are $10 General Admission and $15 VIP (includes "meet and greet"). Call 773-327-7711 to purchase tickets. (Event Details
