While at Belmont, Deonté participated in musical theatre and dance performances. He also participated in a number of cast recordings for Music Theatre International. After college, performing took Deonté all around the world: theme parks in Orlando, FL and Germany, and exotic islands and destinations across the Mediterranean and Caribbean, with some of the world’s most renowned cruising companies. He also toured in Dreamgirls and Sister Act, which took him all across the United States and Canada, as well as Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. Deonté is currently in Aladdin on Broadway as Standby for Genie, Babkak, and the Sultan. Deonté’s debut album (recorded live in New York) was released January 2019 and can be found everywhere music is sold.
