It seems implausible to think it has been almost three decades since the incomparable singer, Broadway star, and television producer Sam Harris first became a household name after becoming the first Grand Prize winner on the television reality talent show pioneer "Star Search."

What was once a new phenomenon to find new talent in the areas of singing, acting and modeling with "Star Search" is now almost one of the few ways we find our new stars of today. But what may separates Sam Harris from those that have and will follow his accent to stardom and acclaim is that he is a pioneer and reliable trailblazer when it comes to giving of his celebrity, talent and time to bringing awareness to the need to create a world of equality for the gay community, and to end the AIDS epidemic.

Based out of San Francisco, BEBE SWEETBRIAR is the Omni Present Drag Chanteuse. As an entertainer and hostess, BeBe can be scene every week hosting and performing at countless events and parties in the San Francisco. One of the few drag personalities to sing live while performing, BeBe has literally graced every notable stage in San Francisco, bridging many gay sub-community gaps. She has also been the opening act for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland, "Ugly Betty’s" Alec Mapa and Dance Diva Kristine W. Adding recording artist to her list of performance accomplishments in 2008 with the release of her first single "Save Me", Ms. Sweetbriar will soon release her fifth dance single in 2012 called "Show It Off"..
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
