Joyful Noises and Huge Hair: Rev. Yolanda's Old Time Gospel Hour
By far, the most outrageous part of Rev. Yolanda's Old Time Gospel Hour is its sincerity. Sure, there's good music and fantastic wigs and plus-size amounts of humor: It's a drag show, after all. But the Reverend Roger Anthony "Yolanda" Mapes isn't skewering faith -- the Rev. is living out his/her beliefs on stage. This mix of camp and candor attracts a wide crowd, including those who would never consider attending a drag show and those who wouldn't be caught dead at a gospel concert. Moreover, Yolanda is a serious musician who, along with skilled collaborators, plays everything from spirituals to original compositions. In fact, "Home," a track from the Rev.'s latest album (Country Gospel Kirtan) has already reached No. 1 on the OutVoice Music Charts. Time passes too quickly during the hilarious sermonizing -- and effortless harmonizing -- of Rev. Yolanda's Old Time Gospel Hour.
