The world is filled with talented people. But sometimes those talented people don't get "discovered." All it takes is one tweet that can pave the way to future stardom. The girls of Siren made a music video of RuPaul's "Sissy That Walk" to pay tribute to the icon. Mama Ru tweeted out a response that is now their pull-quote pride and joy. And from there, Siren was on the map. Drag Race queens gave them some Twitter love. They even got invited by the stars themselves to play and open for them. I "discovered" them after they stole the show at Mimi Imfurst's Britney Spears Tribute show. And that rightly lead to a headlining gig at the Laurie Beechman called Can We Get An Amen: The RuMixes.

If you missed Can We Get An Amen: The RuMixes, you missed out. The moral of the story is, come for the tunes, stay for the pipes. You best get to a Siren gig before they snatch their ticket to stardom and you miss your chance.
