Desmond is Amazing Releases Debut Single 'We Are Amazing'

Desmond Napoles (stage name: Desmond is Amazing) America's teen drag superstar and LGBTQ+ advocate has released their debut single "We Are Amazing" HERE today. The track was written by Desmond, Ashley Levy, and Tomas Costanza and produced by Tomas Costanza. "I wrote 'We Are Amazing' because I wanted LGBTQ+ youth to realize that they ARE amazing and to pay the haters no mind. It's okay to be who you are and to be proud of that. I receive a lot of messages from kids and teens saying that they are getting bullied and I want them to realize that they are a thousand times more amazing than the people that bully them. That was my motivation. I wanted to make an anthem for being yourself. This song is very personal to me because one of my main goals in life is to help others and I hope I can inspire people with my music."says Desmond.

In addition, the video for "We Are Amazing" is also available today. In the video, Desmond is Amazing is joined by various drag kids including Manic Panic's Tish and Snooky as well as fans lip syncing to the song.
