From Russia with love may not be the current sentiment felt by LGBT communities across the globe, but one Russian that is definitely screaming love to all her gay (and straight) fans is pop star on the rise Natali Yura.

Dividing her time between New York, London and Moscow, Yura's debut single "Scream For Love" is gaining international appeal with the help of remixes by Ralph Rosario, Guy Scheiman, Dimitri Vegas, and Like Mike and Kue. The song is currently #21 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play chart (August 31).

"I knew when the record was done, we had a club smash. It's exciting to see her blossom and be apart of her growth. We're all very amped up about this record", says Sony Music A&R guy Kirk Lightman.

Based out of San Francisco, BEBE SWEETBRIAR is the Omni Present Drag Chanteuse. As an entertainer and hostess, BeBe can be scene every week hosting and performing at countless events and parties in the San Francisco. One of the few drag personalities to sing live while performing, BeBe has literally graced every notable stage in San Francisco, bridging many gay sub-community gaps. She has also been the opening act for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland, "Ugly Betty’s" Alec Mapa and Dance Diva Kristine W. Adding recording artist to her list of performance accomplishments in 2008 with the release of her first single "Save Me", Ms. Sweetbriar will soon release her fifth dance single in 2012 called "Show It Off"..
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack.
