For some fans, that might not be soon enough, as anticipation for the track is high: Dezi is feeding into the frenzy, sharing photos to Instagram of himself inspired by Beyoncé’s “Don’t Hurt Yourself” video, and shots of him and his dancers which has been said to be a teaser for the track’s video, which will be directed by Jeremy Biggers…….. 

Dezi 5 talks Fashion to the Dallas Observer 


For Fashion Notes, the Observer talks with Dallas’ most fashion-forward musicians and recreates some of their coolest outfits.
Lehman gathers fashion inspiration from both haute couture and other musicians known for their unique style such as Elton John, Michael Jackson, Grace Jones and Lady Gaga. “When I go out I am always on stage so I must make sure that I don’t look like everybody else,” Lehman says. “I learned that from watching Chanel documentaries.”

“The power of 5” Dezi 5 gets featured in the Dallas Voice!


I always wanted to be a singer growing up, but I was afraid to sing because I thought “no one wants a gay singer.” I was afraid because I had been talked about in school and at home. I still sometimes feel like that awkward kid. As an entertainer I’ve broken barriers in a sexist city as a homosexual man of color and according to the Dallas Observer I was voted “Best Live Act.” 

I am so honored to be featured in the Christmas edition of the Dallas Voice. Thanks Arnold Wayne Jones for allowing the community to know my story. This is the best Christmas present ever…… thanks Adrian Kolby for the find
