Miss Coco Peru’s new pride anthem “Show Me Your Pride”

On her quest to save the world, Miss Coco Peru releases “Show Me Your Pride”, a dance anthem brought to colorful life by the legendary entertainer that the press has called “a heavenly hoot” and “a dragster with real talent and heart”!

From the song:

“There was a time when even I lived in the shadows.

But those queens who came before me called out from the past, and our rich history was revealed to me.

They taught me that we create the life we want to live.

A life lived free of shame.

A life lived loud, proud and just a little bit ridiculous.”

This is the first music video Miss Coco Peru has released of an original song.

I’ve seen Peru’s solo shows and she absolutely kills. Make sure you make the effort to see her if she comes to town.

Miss Coco Peru does Vegas!
