Colton Ford Covers Alicia Keys' "No One"


Openly-gay singer and former adult film star Colton Ford pours his heart out on a totally unplugged cover of Alicia Keys' "No One." The video of his gutsy acapella performance left me a bit puzzled at first but a press release clears a few things up.

The bathroom scenes, toe-tapping and the glory hole shots in the video turn out to be "a big wink to the recent Larry Craig 'toe-tapping' scandal" and not just an easy nod to Folton's porno past. The video was shot by Bart Everly, who directed last year's acclaimed indie documentary "Let's Get Frank," about Congressman Barney Frank.

Ford will be releasing a dance version of "No One" as a single on December 11. His debut album, titled "Tug Of War," will be released on February 19 on Outsider Music. Get more information about Ford on his MySpace page.

Ugh. His voice is completely devoid of any originality. Boring, blah, ick. And the video lacks creativity. Really? A Larry Craig joke? Jay Leno called, he wants his monologue back.

Poor Colton, he should should have stuck to porn.
