Deedee Lynn Magno Hall is a Filipino-American actress and a singer in the pop group The Party. The child of immigrants from the Philippines, a sailor in the United States Navy and a nurse, she grew up in San Diego and Orlando.[1] She began acting at a young age, lending her voice to the Disney show The All New Mickey Mouse Club (that was first recorded in 1988) in 1988-1991 and sometimes 1992.[2] She also appears as Jasmine on the Disney's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular soundtrack. She is credited as one of the students in the 1993 film, Sister Act 2. She is currently the voice of Pearl in the animated series Steven Universe.

After The Party, Hall went on to perform in musical theater, most notable was her role of Kim in the Broadway production of Miss Saigon, a role she later reprised on the national tour. She later played the role of Nessarose on the first national tour of Wicked, from December 12, 2006 until November 16, 2008. She most recently reprised the role in the San Francisco sit-down production at the Orpheum Theatre. Performances began January 27, 2009 with an opening night of February 6, 2009.[3] She played her final performance on September 5, 2010, when the production closed. She joined the ensemble for the US tour of If/Then in October 2015.
