Music is a passion that can be fostered at a young age. For Randy Boo, his childhood was spent listening to and creating music, knowing that this was what he was most passionate about. Today, he becomes a rising artist in the music industry.
Boo’s first single, “GFY,” features the late Chi Chi DeVayne from RuPaul’s Drag Race. He proudly released his song in February 2020, just before everything fell into the chaos of the pandemic. Unfortunately, his friend, DeVayne, passed away at the young age of 34 very recently. DeVayne’s demise led Randy Boo to honor him through a special track.
Through Boo’s music, there was a new way to honor and remember DeVayne’s friendship. A remix of the track “GFY” was released shortly after DeVayne’s death as a tribute. Randy Boo himself edited the music video as a way to show his love and respect for his dear friend. The song is currently up for streaming and downloading in all online music platforms and on YouTube.
Most of what Randy Boo does revolves around music. He can sing, rap, produce and write his own songs. But apart from music, Boo is also known for being a multi talented person — a jack of all trades. He can act, dance, and model, too.
Most people may recognize Randy Boo from the band Echo V, which he was part of for three fruitful years. He had also made appearances as a host on the show Gay Town Hall, and has been a dancer on the show Hey Qween. With regards to his modeling career, he has been on a magazine cover twice, which has earned him a good set of fans. He also starred in an indie film, and even opened for multiple other big-time artists like Jussie Smollet, Todrick Hall, and Dev.
But before he became a rising star in the performing industry, Randy Boo also had his fair share of humble beginnings. He was born on December 12, 1985, in Morong Rizal, Philippines, as Randel Cuevas. His parents then brought him to Denver where he grew up, but he continued to raise his Filipino flag with pride. Even after living his whole life outside the Philippines, he still proudly speaks both English and Tagalog.
In 2004, he finally decided to fulfill his childhood passion of working with music. With his now blooming music career, Randy Boo lives up to the stereotype of Filipinos being excellent musicians.
Most of Boo’s current audience are members of the LGBTQ+ community; however, his music and lyrics are universal in some ways. Apart from his talent-driven career and noble occupation as an HIV tester, Randy Boo’s life is full of interesting and inspiring stories.
