dante thomasDante Thomas (born on January 7, 1978 in Sacramento, California) is a pop\R&B singer from the 2000s.

After graduating from high school, Dante moved to New York City to pursue a music career, but after his first night in the city, he moved back to home to Salt Late City, Utah where he worked as an electrician.

Determined to give his dream another chance, Dante returned to New York to make a demo and he ended up meeting Pras (who is well-known for being part of the music group, The Fugees).

After convincing him to listen to his demo, Pras told Dante to call his assistant and they would get together at a future date, but after Dante gave an impromptu audition on the spot, Pras was impressed with him and they immediately began working together.
