It was a pleasure to meet Mr. Deonte Scott at his Farewell Celebration At Boheme in Houston, TX. Scott is a Chicago native who resides in Houston about 10 years now. With his new job, he will be relocating to Austin, TX for an ultimate adventure. Meeting with Scott was a pleasure. To see many in supports of the transition of his career shows his work holds longevity. The room was filled with good spirits and smiles from famiy and friends in supports of Mr. Scott. Sherita Stanley from Vision4Productions spoke with a few family and friends about Deonte:
“I watched Deonte connect with strangers, then – using his words – strip himself bare. Doing that allowed them to drop the mask of “it’s okay” or “we’re getting used to this” or “it is what it is”. And they let their true, raw feelings pour out, because Deonte had created a space that felt safe. And by sharing they left behind part of their burden because they sensed that Deonte was willing to pick it up and carry it and care for it.”
