Chad Michaels was born in Los Angeles but grew up in San Diego.
Chad Michaels originally went by the drag name "Brigitte Love." Michaels chose to perform under his own name after working at "An Evening at La Cage" in Las Vegas, which required the drag queens to use male stage names.
In 2010, Michaels competed in the first California Entertainer of the Year pageant, becoming first alternate to winner Shangela.
Michaels produces and performs with the Dreamgirls Revue, the longest running female impersonation show in California. Performers in the Dreamgirls Revue include RuPaul's Drag Race contestants Delta Work, Detox, Morgan McMichaels, Raja, Shannel, Sonique, and Venus D-Lite. Morgan McMichaels is Chad Michaels' drag daughter, from whom she took her last name.
Also in 2010 Chad appeared on Jessica Sutta (former Pussycat Doll) music video for her promo single "I Wanna Be Bad"
