It was there that he learned he had been blessed with a powerful singing voice that was perfect for musical theatre. After his first show, Alfonso began taking acting classes to hone his craft. During this time he performed in a number of musical theatre productions, among them: Guys and Dolls, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Man of La Mancha. A gifted dramatic actor, he has also starred in I'm Not Rapp a port, The Boys Next Door and Zoo Story, to name a few. His work on stage won Alfonso critical praise, and would naturally take him to film and television where he won guest-starring roles on such shows as The West Wing, ER, Providence and The Practice. His film credits include The Shaw shank Redemption, Nurse Betty, the award winning in die feature Burn, and the short parody, The Shark Tank Redemption in which he starred.
But life and faith have brought Alfonso and his art full circle. All that he learned in theatre, music and ministry have helped prepare him for his current role as recording artist with the release of his self-produced debut CD project, I Want To Believe; a Gospel music work containing smooth and mellow tunes perfect for the mature listener. With songs like, New Mercies, Fairest Lord Jesus, Through Praise, and the title track, I Want To Believe, there is something for everyone. This labor of love is steeped in faith and experience, and is the culmination of a life-long love of art and faith, coming from the heart of a boy raised on the hard streets of Compton who has become a man of God, and a much sought after actor, singer, and musician.
