Delighted Tobehere’s entertainment career began February 2001 where she performed alongside The Armorettes - "The Infamous Camp Drag Queens of the South" - in the legendary nightclub Backstreet Atlanta. Since her momentous first performance, she has been a tour de force in the drag scene both on-stage and behind the scenes.
Delighted Tobehere was named as one of the funniest drag queens in America by the Huffington Post, and the internationally celebrated comedian Pam Ann says that she is “hysterical!”
In 2015, Delighted debuted on NBC's America's Got Talent to rave reviews and 4 Yes votes from the judges: "I loved the entire performance" - Howard Stern, and "[Delighted] just became the first country music dragstar!" - Howie Mandel.
A self described "Queen of all Trades," Delighted combines celebrity illusion, vocal impressions, live vocals, lip sync, comedy, intelligence, and quick wit to wow audiences from corporate functions to pride festivals.
Delighted’s feature celebrity illusion is none other than Adele. London’s QX Magazine says that her impersonation is “something that has to be seen to be believed!” and Boy George said that it was “perfection!”
It’s not just about laughter. Anyone who has attended Delighted’s shows in the last few years, seen her TEDx talk, heard her speak at a university campus, or been an invited guest at one of her lectures has experienced what she considers her personal mission: “Encouraging self-discovery and acceptance of others through the lens of drag through laughter and thought provoking entertainment.”
Delighted continues to hear from those attending her shows, lectures, and speaking engagements who found clarity when their world was out of focus. Often they report having had revelations and “ah-ha” moments on how they view themselves and the world.
Hailing from the Carolinas, her southern upbringing lends a charm to her performances that makes everyone feel comfortable and welcomed, even in her new home of New York City! Within her first two months of living in The Big Apple, Delighted won the titles of "New York's Best In Drag” and a live singing drag queen competition called "Sing, Queen!," as well as securing weekly residencies at local nightclubs. She has performed over 100 shows in both London and LA and travels extensively across the nation.
Delighted was featured in the New York Times for her work as a top Broadway style live singing drag queen, and she has also performed two solo cabaret shows - High Heels and Low Notes, and Broadway Life Hacks - at New York City’s legendary Feinstein’s/54 Below, a cabaret space in the basement of the famed Studio 54.
In 2016, Delighted formed a relationship with Act II Stages in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, performing her live singing one-woman shows annually in residency in their Red Room Cabaret.
In 2017, Delighted created Delighted’s Drag Brunch and Dinner at Cafe and Then Some in Greenville, SC. She is the producer and host of this regular event that features local talent paired with renowned national and international entertainers.
In 2019, Delighted partnered with Brand g Vacations to entertain on select trips, with her debut performance on their Danube River cruise from Budapest, Hungary to Bucharest, Romania.
Delighted is currently touring her selection of one-woman live singing cabarets across the world. Some of the shows are She Haw, DRAG 101, DIVARIETY (with co-star Gigi Monroe), and Simply Delighted.
