Ever since she was a little girl, DeQuina Moore heard the call of the stage. First hearing the call when she was 4 years old at a Patti LaBelle concert. At one point during the show her parents couldn’t find her. All they had to do was look up and there little DeQuina was side-by-side with Patti LaBelle on stage glowing in the spotlight. And she has been glowing in that spotlight ever since. Growing up in Houston and now living out her dreams on stages across the country, Moore returns home starring in Flashdance – The Musical.
