Chad Michaels is an American drag performer and impersonator of pop singer Cher. He was the runner-up of the fourth season of RuPaul's Drag Race and was the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars season one.
Michaels originally went by the drag name "Brigitte Love." Michaels chose to perform under his own name after working at "An Evening at La Cage" in Las Vegas, which required the drag queens to use male stage names.
Michaels produces and performs with the Dreamgirls Revue, the longest running female impersonation show in California. Performers in the Dreamgirls Revue include RuPaul's Drag Race contestants Delta Work, Raven, Detox, Morgan McMichaels, Raja, Shannel, and Venus D-Lite. Morgan McMichaels is Chad Michaels' drag daughter, from whom he took his last name.
