While attending the University of Georgia, Robinson signed a recording contract with Motown Records, although the label never issued any of his material.

After the end of the series, he appeared in such films as Fat Albert, and Mimic Sentinel. Robinson also appeared in such television series as American DreamsMonk, and Over There.

Robinson and Obba Babatundé (who portrayed C.C. White in the original Broadway production of Dreamgirls) both had recurring roles on the UPN series Half & Half. Robinson recently played the role of Chester Fields, on Fox's Canterbury's Law. Most recently, Robinson appeared in the supporting role of C.C. White in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls. The film includes a Robinson-led version of the Dreamgirls song "Family". Robinson joined his fellow Dreamgirls cast members to perform "Patience", one of the new songs written for the film, at the 79th Academy Awards ceremony. He appeared in the film This Christmas.
