It was right, and it was more than OK. Legendary remix producer and circuit DJ Chris Cox returned to gay Atlanta behind one of his star-making divas Saturday on what would have been her 51st birthday.
Cox, who as half of the Thunderpuss duo created defining Houston dance floor remixes, was the man for the job, and he got it done in signature style. When his Diva-Rama Whitney Houston Tribute Party descended on Jungle, all dancing queens could do was hang onto their hats and lose their shirts. They did.
Performances throughout the night honored the legend, a famous face in the form of gay actor-activist Wilson Cruz graced the crowd, and vintage Whitney videos on a special big screen just added to the magic.
