RuPaul's Drag Race on Friday
released a video compilation of Sahara Davenport's greatest moments
on the show.
Davenport, a contestant on the second
season of RuPaul's Drag Race, died Monday at Johns Hopkins
Hospital in Baltimore at the age of 27.
Logo, the network behind the drag
reality series, mourned the loss in a statement released Tuesday.
“Logo is profoundly saddened by the
passing of Antoine Ashley who fans around the world knew and loved as
Sahara Davenport,” Logo said in a Facebook post.
A representative for Davenport said on
Wednesday that the drag star died from heart failure.
In the 90-second video, Davenport is
seen in various competitions on the show, including the competitor's
“I'm Sahara Davenport. I'm 25 years
old. And I live in New York City,” a jubilant Davenport says.
Show host RuPaul is seen telling the
contestants: “It has a lyric, 'Mama said never give up.' And I've
used it as my anthem. I want each of you girls to know that even
through adversity or death: love, energy live forever.” (The video
