When she was not performing, Belfon taught gymnastics at the Belmont Junior Secondary school and at the YMCA. Denise is of Spanish and Afro-Trinidadian descent.
In 1990, Belfon was discovered by the bandleader of Roy Cape. She started singing professionally with the soca band Black Sheep, before moving on to Sound Revolution.
