Reading Time: 3 minutes
Eureka O’Hara is showing the entire world why they have everything necessary to become America’s next drag superstar. Eureka just released a music video for their song “Come Together,” written for their late mother, Ulrike Schneider Stacy. She fought a long battle with cancer and attended the Season 10 RuPaul’s Drag Race finale before her death in 2019.
Eureka O’Hara Sings Important Message in New Song ‘Come Together’
Eureka performed this song during the All Stars Variety Show in episode one of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. The performance ended with a projection of their mother on the dress. It was a very emotional highlight during a night full of hits and misses. Eureka knew that they would perform a tribute to their mother if they were ever chosen to compete on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. This song was two years in the making and written by Eureka.
“‘Come Together’ is a song which honors my mother, her support, and all she believed in,” they wrote on YouTube. “‘Come Together; is a song about and for all of us who feel different in some way. She was from another country and found her way as a single mom with 3 children. ‘Come Together’ is a song about feeling strong and empowered. It’s important for me to push this message to the world cause we forget it often. We are so much more alike than you Know.”
Eureka looks stunning in the music video wearing a floral headpiece. They dance around in a flowy white dress to the powerful lyrics. Images are projected onto the same dress they wore for the challenge on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars. They look at a picture of their mom and urge everyone to “stand up and come together” and put their differences aside. Photos from BLM marches that took place this year also flash in the background.
