His YouTube handle is "BeefSteer."

His tribute to Judy Garland is a totally massacred version of "Someone to Watch over Me."

But easily the worst is this wretched rendition of "Evergreen," with bizarre animation from what looks like "The Sims":

He is that weird combination of fascinating, hilarious and repulsive.

A comment on Evergreen by an obviously deaf and blind fan.

Two thumbs up! Stuck right in my ears.

He's no Susan Boyle. He LOOKS like Susan Boyle but he's no Susan Boyle. I can forgive the looks, the cheesy animation, but I can not forgive the voice. He's not very good, and clearly not even close to how good he thinks he is.... EPIC FAIL.

This is every fiftysomething gay man with bad hair, bad clothes and bad breath in EVERY bar that I've ever seen.

He is always sitting near the door, offering a kind word and a drink to potential new friends. But they run from him scared, as if they are on fire, when he begins to sing. Or when he tells them about his Barbie collection. Or that he saw Dinah Shore in concert 27 times.

I'm guessing he's from some tiny city/town somewhere, possibly the south, where he hangs out at the local gay piano/drag queen bar with a lot of other old gay guys, the town likely void of many other gay men.

He's very familiar to me because I grew up with this type of guy being my very first impression of what gay men were which is why I was so terrified of coming out when I was young. I didn't want to morph into that.

Hey, as long as he's happy, good for him. But yeah, it's a bit sad that he's sitting in a little closet singing to his imaginary audience. In the Over the Rainbow video, he really felt he WAS Judy at that most. He gives new meaning to MARY!

R124, click on his name ,and it will lead you to more information about him. Apparently he is from New Orleans. One of his other greatest hits are bottles of beer on the wall.Also, he has hair in the other stuff he sings in, maybe it's a rug.

R124, I think you have a point. YouTube is his very minor 15 minutes of fame. It's sad because it's evident this has been his dream to sing, and have some audience or some recognition. I guess if he is there doing his little thing,and it makes him happy, all power to him. He isn't harming anyone. I think it takes a lot of guts to sing in front of hundreds to thousands to dissect your sinning. I couldn't do it. Mr. Rees, your living out your dream, who cares! go for it!

Also, the way some of you talk on here it's kind of rough like many of you guys seem so manly. I bet a lot of you hoties were in the military right? HOT. However, I really have to be truly honest. I'm not kidding but many of the guys who are on the DL Facebook page have long, long hair and beards, who wants to date a bearded lady?!! Some are cute though.
