Former U.S. Airman shows Hollywood he's got the right stuff
HOLLYWOOD, CA -- When former U. S. Air Force veteran Deitric Thompson took to the stage during the 2011 Celebrity Industry Invitational April 2, the trajectory of his career path banked sharply toward the Pacific blue skies of Tinsel Town.
The standing-room-only showcase, which featured 20 of southern California's more talented performing artists, took place at Celebrity Centre International. It was executive-produced by Jay D. Pugh, president and CEO of RK Records.
Since the April 2 star-studded event, the actor/singer/martial artist/stuntman has received high praise on a daily basis from scores of music lovers nationwide, even from some of his fellow soldiers who served with him overseas.
"It was a pleasure working with you in Iraq," stated Brandon Mejia in the Hollywood channel at NowPublic.com. "I am glad you are being blessed with this opportunity to share your voice with the world."
During Thompson's year-long deployment in 2008, the senior airman participated in two successful missions under the multinational umbrella of the global War on Terror -- Operation: Enduring Freedom and Operation: Iraqi Freedom.
Following his return from war, Thompson, whose singing voice has been compared with Grammy recording artist George Benson's, has been concentrating on another type of theatre -- expanding his film credits while launching a career in the music recording industry.
"When I first heard [Deitric] sing, I melted," wrote Alyssa Gomez in the Hollywood channel at NowPublic.com.
"I admire his bubbly personality, his positive attitude and his drive to never give up on his dreams."
