Accomplished actress, singer-songwriter, performer, and producer, DeQuina Moore is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Forget triple-threat!

Recently, DeQuina tore the house down with her role as Shug Avery in acclaimed The Color Purple at Maine State Music Theatre. She brought “the Queen Honeybee back to the hive and every man, woman, and breathing thing in her sphere wants her, or worships her from afar. Moore sold every song…and left that lingering memory of her vibrant presence each time she made an exit”, said the Wiscasset Newspaper.
