Is there a word that takes the term "triple threat" to another level? Well if so, then that's the word that should be used to describe Dominique Rougeaux. This native Texan realized her love for music while singing in her church choir. Growing up on Houston's southside, Dominique used her deep rooted belief in God, and her musical talent to stay off the streets. An avid music lover by age 4, she began singing solo in churches in the Houston/Metropolitan area, and by age 6, began traveling to other cities, showcasing her musical talents, which soon earned her the nickname "The Little Southern Songbird". By age 10, Dominique began competing and winning countless talent shows, and also writing gospel as well as R & B music. Already an accomplished singer and songwriter, Dominique added actress, and musician to her list of talents.
By the time she was 15, she had already performed in a number of musicals including Oklahoma, Dorothy in "The Wizard Of Oz", The Lady In Brown, in "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enough", and became the National Anthem girl for WNBA basketball games, and The Houston Aeros home games.
Dominique has performed at the famous Rainbow Room, B.B. Kings Blues Bar and Grill, the Apollo Theater, and the Sugar Bar in New York City, owned by Valerie Simpson and the late Nick Ashford. She has also opened for Envouge, Mya and Boys II Men,
"I started singing very young, even before I actually understood what the word singing meant. I remember singing myself to sleep when I was like 2 or 3 years old, but I had no idea that years later it would be what it is today, and I would be blessed to have done the things that i've done and the things that God has planned for me in the very near future". This near future includes the release of her debut solo project titled "The Soundtrack To My Life", and also a spoken word project titled "Conversations With God", chronicling the recent near death battles with kidney failure. "I am truely, truely blessed to have gone through what i've gone through, and lived to tell the story. No one is ever "too young", death doesn't care if you're 2 years old, 22 years old or 102 years old, it doesn't matter, you just have to thank God for every day above ground, even if it's a bad day, and RIDE THIS MUTHA till the wheels fall off."
