Sylvester 

Sylvester wasn't just a drag queen, he was a pop star. With a powerhouse voice, he topped the Billboard charts with songs like 1988's "Someone Like You," 1978's "Dance (Disco Heat)" and the 1978 classic "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)." Sylvester passed away in December 1988 at 41 years old, but his impact on pop culture is unforgettable.
