“My father was really an actor. If you asked him, he would probably tell you he was the best actor that ever life…[but] convinced you all that [he’s] a singer,” Gina says.
Belafonte rose to prominence after being discovered by a group of jazz musicians, who just so happened to be some of the most influential musicians in the world at the time. He initially invited them to view his work as an actor in a play. After watching his musical theatre performance, they invited him to sing which began his career as an artist.
His handsome looks and charisma won the hearts of many over the span of his life and career.
