Diggs began performing in experimental theater early in his career, most notably when he was on the national tour for Marc Bamutho Joseph's "Worth Becomes Flesh" about a nine-month pregnancy through the eyes of a young, single father. He also appeared in regional Shakespeare plays.

When appearing with the freestyle hip hop group Freestyle Love Supreme, or FLS, Diggs met playwright, composer, actor, and rapper Lin-Manuel Miranda through Thomas Kail. Miranda invited Diggs to read and hear early versions of Hamilton in 2012. Diggs was captivated by Miranda's live demonstrations and enthusiasm for the venture, and learned that the idea was a prospective use of the rap-musical medium. Thomas Jefferson and Marquis de Lafayette appeared off Broadway in 2015, and he's keeping the roles as the show was relocated to Broadway later this year. Diggs received the 2016 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical as well as a the 2016 Grammy Prize for the cast album.

They joined Sub Pop in 2014 and launched their album CLPPNG, which they promoted with their CLPPNG Tour. Wriggle was their first EP, followed by Splendor & Misery. The Deep, a five-and-a-half minute track that tells the tale of a community of slave descendants living submerged, was released in 2017.

www.dailymail.co.uk, March 8, 2024

On Thursday, the theater couple, who have been on Instagram since 2015, announced the birth of their first child together with a partial snapshot of their newborn's little legs dressed in a green onesie. 'You have forever changed us,'dear babe.' Our hearts are brimming with a kind of love we never thought possible. We love you more than you will ever know,' they shared in a joint tweet, 'thanks for choosing us.' Now, please...goddamn sleep. 'Love, mother, and dad.' The couple first revealed major pregnancy news on Instagram in September, posting pictures of The Little Mermaid actor, 42, laughing and kissing The Umbrella Academy actress, 35, as they both cradled her baby bump. In the caption to another joint post, they wrote, 'We can't wait to meet you.'

As the first song in TWO DECADES for the new Trolls: Band Together soundtrack, NSYNC has piqued the imaginations of fans

"The Little Mermaid," Halle Bailey's "The Little Mermaid" is finally in theaters, but when will you view it?

www.popsugar.co.uk, May 30, 2023
After much anticipation, Disney's magical live-action reimagining of "The Little Mermaid" is now in theaters. The remake, which stars Halle Bailey as Ariel, has been one of the year's most awaited films, particularly after unveiling its sprawling, full trailer during the 2023 Oscars. Jonah Hauer-Kinging as Prince Eric and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as King Triton, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Daveed Diggs as Sebastian are among the film's cast members. Although live-action Disney remakes can sometimes be hit or miss, it seems that the new "The Little Mermaid" has something to appeal to everyone (even adults who are big fans of the classic tale). The revived film breathes new life into a classic tale that today's youth is falling in love with, particularly with Bailey at the forefront.
