Bio

Keith Robinson is an American actor and R&B singer best known for his role as Joel Rawlings, the Green Lightspeed Ranger, in the television series Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue, in 2000.

In the critically acclaimed feature film Dreamgirls, Robinson played C.C. White, the brother of Jennifer Hudson's character, Effie. He starred opposite Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé Knowles, Eddie Murphy, Danny Glover and Anika Noni Rose in Bill Condon's adaptation of the hit Broadway musical.

The film won the Golden Globe for Best Picture and two Academy Awards, and received eight Oscar nominations and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Robinson lent his voice to three songs on the film's soundtrack, including Family (which features a solo by Robinson) and the Oscar-nominated Patience with Murphy and Rose (which Robinson performed with Hudson, Knowles and Rose on the 79th Academy Awards broadcast).

Robinson was first introduced to the public in 2004's film Fat Albert. He then found success on television with regular roles on American Dreams and FX's Over There.

He won a 2006 Camie (Character and Morality in Entertainment) Award for his performance in The Reading Room, an original Hallmark movie starring James Earl Jones.

In 2007 he was seen in the ensemble film This Christmas alongside Delroy Lindo, Regina King, Nia Long and Mekhi Phifer.

In 2008 he starred in the television miniiseries Comanche Moon, based on Larry McMurtry's prequel to Lonesome Dove, in which he plays the young Danny Glover character, Deets. He also played the role of Chester Grant in the short-lived legal drama series Canterbury's Law.

When Robinson is not on set, the Kentucky native is in the recording studio working on an album and music for major motion pictures and television.
