CANDYE KANE - Superhero (2009)

Candye Kane is used to shocking audiences when she takes the stage. Dressed in brightly colored feathers, sequins and rhinestones, the self-described “fat black drag queen trapped in a white woman’s body” belts, growls and croons her selection of original blues and classic rock tunes. Sporting a streaked Betty Page hairstyle, the San Diego sexpot is known for her outrageous renditions of “Whole Lotta Love” and “200 Pounds of Fun,” both of which glorify the sensuality of zaftig women. But the blues-belting diva wore only a white hospital gown when she surprised a new audience — her doctors. Miss Kane was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and philosophically told her physician, “If it’s my time to go, I sure have had an amazing ride.” Having lost friends to the disease, Kane knew that pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers, often claiming its victims just six months after diagnosis.

One year later, she was pronounced cancer-free, stunning her medical team once again. So it’s no wonder Kane feels like a “Superhero,” to quote the title of her 10th and latest CD. The 15-track CD opens with tough, soulful original songs, such as “Hey! Toughen Up” and closes with “I’m Gonna Be Just Fine,” whose lyrics she says were therapeutic to write. Produced by Delta Groove Music, the recording contains some of Kane’s most personal writing yet.
