Born on the southern coast of Italia, Balena Canto sang out to sea conjuring a passing humpback whale who took her to a distant and mysterious land called Philadelphia. Balena's favorite thing about her home is a local delicacy called, "water ice" (helps soothe the singer's throat). Balena’s mission in life is to bring joy and laughter to her audiences through song. She has already made a name for herself performing in many of the leading shows and competitions in the Greater Philadelphia area including her own drag opera extravaganza, “Fach Off,” which she co-hosts with Good Judy,
Zsa Zsa Dali every 4th Thursday at Philly’s Tabu! Also, Balena frequently hosts Drag Queen Story Times at many of the area's libraries teaching children about diversity, self love, creativity and acceptance.
