Deanna “Bomb Chica” Colón

When asked where her passion for entertainment comes from Deanna will always transparently answer “I was constantly bullied as a child because of my weight, on stage was the one place where I was not only accepted but applauded”.

A child of hard working, immigrant restaurant owners, Deanna was a latch key kid and spent any free time in her family’s basement with her hairbrush in hand would practice her singing and stage performance along with Whitney, Patsy, Chaka and Barbara. The family basement led to recording studios and stages in the Boston area, where Deanna was born and raised.

One lucky day, Deanna was overheard singing by a staff member at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. She was on the spot, offered a scholarship to attend their 5-week Summer Program and by the end of it, wowed the institution into awarding her a full tuition scholarship to study. Deanna gratefully accepted.

During her time at Berklee she honed her singing, performing and songwriting skills. She landed her first, national jingles, performed with and for Diana Ross, Patti Labelle, Arif Mardin, Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans and Pat Metheny and on a magical night at The Wang Center in Boston, she took the stage with Stevie Wonder. He played piano and she sang “Ribbon in The Sky”. All she remembers is a standing ovation, hugging Stevie and not wanting to let go and being written up in The Boston Globe as a sensation the next day!

Deanna graduated Berklee with a BA in Music Business and Management and a minor in Songwriting. She picked up her degree moved to NYC. There she was met with more incredible opportunities as a vocalist for studio, live and jingle gigs. She landed a Top 3 Billboard Dance hit with “Higher”, which she sang/co-wrote and was produced by legendary DJ and Grammy award winning producer, David Morales.
