Keith is best known for his critically acclaimed role as “C.C. White” in the Academy Award winning feature film, Dreamgirls. In which he was directed by Bill Condon, and starred alongside Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy and Anika Noni Rose. In the musical, Robinson’s big solo, “Patience,” which he also performed live at the Academy Awards, earned him an Oscar nomination.

On the acting side, Robinson followed Dreamgirls with This Christmas, co-starring Chris Brown, Idris Elba, Loretta Devine and Delroy Lindo. He then went on to star in Dear John opposite Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. Roles in 35 and Ticking, starring alongside Kevin Hart, and Hopelessly in June soon followed. Next, Robinson began shooting Dysfunctional Friends.

Like many, he’s taken a behind-the-scenes approach to creating music. Robinson founded his own scoring company, Theme Song. Since its establishment, Theme Song has scored music for movies like Blade 3, Fat Albert, and 35 and Ticking, in which he also starred. Most recently, the budding company scored Divorce Invitation (2012) also starring Robinson alongside Jonathan Bennett, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Nadia Bjorlin. 

Keith’s upcoming releases include CRU, an emotionally intense film in which he stars alongside Harry Lennix, Richard T. Jones, and Alison Eastwood. Four Seasons, a romantic comedy starring with Robin Givens and Christian Keyes, and most recently, Universal’s James Brown biopic Get On Up, with Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Dan Aykroyd. In conjunction with the release of Get On Up, Keith will also be releasing his new album, Love Episodic, both due in 2014.
