Media sensation & American Idol Top 8-finalist ADA VOX will mark her Los Angeles debut, and release her first single at Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood! Live Sun, Aug 12 at 7:30pm

Drag Queen Ada Vox was a semi-finalist and Top 8 contestant on last season’s ABC reboot of American Idol. Her appearance was a first for the show. Vox auditioned for American Idol in 2013 when she was known as Adam Sanders, but he was eliminated after Hollywood week. Shortly thereafter, the threats on social media began. During the auditions for this year's show, Adam told the judges that people had attacked his weight, his sexuality, that he sucked, and that he didn’t deserve to be on American Idol. “I let it get to me,” says Sanders, “and it killed me inside. I was contemplating lots of things that I shouldn’t have.” When he heard the show was coming to ABC this year, he decided to audition again but this time as his alter ego Ada Vox. “I was an okay singer then, but I'm a hundred times better now. I'm vocally stronger, I'm a better performer, and I'm way more prepared to take on the challenges that come with a competition like American Idol.” Ada Vox made history as the first Drag Queen ever to get all the way to the American Idol Top 8.

With special guest EFFIE PASSERO (American Idol Top 24 finalist), DAVID HERNANDEZ (American Idol Finalist) and more! 

Tickets: $25-35, Artist Circle & VIP Seating Available. Call Box Office (866) 468- 3399 or online at www.TicketWeb.com

    ADA VOX, a San Antonio drag queen who has been singing her heart out on ABC's 2018 reboot of "American Idol." As a Semifinalist and Top 8 contestant, Her appearance marks a first for the TV competition show and she was one of the standouts from the audition rounds thanks to her performance of "House of the Rising Sun." When Katy Perry asked if she was going to take this competition seriously, Ada responded, "I'm not here to play with anybody. I'm here to chase my dreams and make them come true."

    Ada Vox auditioned for American Idol back in 2013 when she was known as Adam Sanders. In one of his Season 12 performances, he got a standing ovation from three of the four judges with his rendition of Etta James's I'd Rather Go Blind. Despite this, he got eliminated after Hollywood week. After he appeared on Season 12 of American Idol, he started getting threats on social media. He revealed on this year's show right before his audition: 'People attacked my weight, my sexuality, telling me that I was horrible, that I sucked, that I don't deserve to be here, that I shouldn't be who I am. And I let it get to me in a wrong way. It killed me inside. It killed me inside almost as much as people were telling me that I should kill myself...I was contemplating lots of things that I shouldn't have.'

    Adam did not let that deter him from his dream and when he heard the show was coming back to ABC this year, he decided to audition again as his alter ego Ada Vox. He said: 'I was an OK singer then - I was. But I'm a hundred times better now than I ever was then. I'm vocally better, I'm a better performer, I'm a better entertainer, I'm more prepared as an adult now to take on the challenges that come with a competition like this.'

    Adam was born in San Antonio, Texas, and has worked at a seafood restaurant by day and drag queen by night. The 24-year-old is a University of Texas graduate and lists his influences as Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle and more.

    Ada has made history and is the first Drag Queen ever to make it all the way as American Idol's 2018 Top 8 finalists!

    Actor/singer/songwriter, DAVID HERNANDEZ, gained national attention with his powerful voice and affable personality as an American Idol finalist. He began acting and singing at age six, starring in musicals and performing with various theatre companies throughout Arizona. As a young teenager David began writing original music and recording his material.


    A Phoenix native, Hernandez recently moved to Hollywood where he is writing new songs, working in the recording studio producing his newest music, and pursuing his passion for acting. He has already completed his first feature film as the lead in the movie Synthetic Truth.


    In addition to American Idol, David has showcased his talents on The Ellen Show, The Today Show, MTV's TRL, EXTRA, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Teen Choice Awards, TV Guides' Sexiest Stars 2008, Idol Tonight, Idol Gives Back and FOX-TV.


    A once-in-a-life-time invitation came to David when he was asked to sing at the Inaugural Kick-Off Celebration ball for President Barack Obama. He was honored to share the stage with Jamie Foxx, John Legend and Maroon 5, along with event hosts Jessica Alba and legendary TV producer, Norman Lear. Scottsdale's most exclusive restaurant/show club, Barcelona, was David's performance home for nearly a year performing three nights a week with his band Generation. Featured several times on FOX-TV, David's high energy stage presence and flawless vocal delivery kept the club packed every night.


    During holiday season 2008 and 2009, David traveled throughout the US, singing for over 250,000 fans, as the star of a twenty-four city tour entitled Idols at Christmas. Las Vegas was home for David over the July 4th weekend 2009, where he headlined three sold out shows in the showroom at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. Vegas called again when he was asked to be the featured performer in a major Las Vegas Casino's showroom for their 2010 New Year's Eve Show.


    Ballroom With A Twist is Hernandez's newest creative adventure. He is the featured vocalist in this exhilarating national-tour spinoff of TV's hit show Dancing with the Stars. It's directed and choreographed by Dancing with the Stars own Louis van Amstel. The show is headed north this year for a major Canadian tour. This is a ‘must see' music and dance extravaganza.
