Actor-turned-singer Colton Ford performed a song written by Howard Greenfield and the legendary Carole King, and was originally recorded by The Everly Brothers. Crying In The Rain was filmed last year at a World AIDS Day show. It is hard to miss just how gorgeous Mr. Ford is, and why would you want to miss that anyway? To make it even better, he is out and proud, too!
For some who might not be so familiar with Colton, he first made a name for himself as an adult film actor, although his first love was music. so he worked in the industry for a bit to bankroll some money and has stuck with the music since. He also did a cover of the great song by Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, Lithium. It is an interesting cover, I will have to give him that.
It was doing dance records where Ford soared, that R&B Diva just straining to get out. He did a wonderful cover of Stevie Wonder's Signed, Sealed, Delivered with dance diva Ms. Pepper Mashay.
Ford is taken fairly seriously as both a singer and an actor. He can often be seen at Pride Festivals across the country, and had a sizable role in the HERE! TV horror series The Lair from 2007 - 2009. You can also check out his two albums on iTunes. There was Tug Of War here, and the rather slyly-named Under The Covers here.
