‘Love Is A Beautiful Thing’

by Teri Doty, Music Insider Magazine

Many people know Leon Robinson simply as “Leon,” the actor starring with Tom Cruise in “All the Right Moves,” a star in Madonna’s controversial “Like a Prayer” video and the lead actor in “Cool Runnings.” He also gave memorable performances as three legendary singers: David Ruffin in the miniseries “The Temptations;” Little Richard in the TV movie “Little Richard,” for which he received an Emmy nomination; and JT in “The Five Heartbeats.”


Yet Robinson’s musical abilities go far beyond his portrayals in TV and film. An accomplished lead vocalist and songwriter, Robinson and his band Leon & The Peoples received an International Reggae and World Music Award nomination for their debut CD “The Road Less Traveled,” and won “Best International Artist” at the Joe Higgs Reggae Awards.

Recently signed to Spectra Music Group, Leon & The Peoples’ new single, “Love Is A Beautiful Thing” was featured on the BET/Centric TV show “Culture List,” which premiered in July 2013. The band is working on its first album for Spectra and has embarked on its “Love Is A Beautiful Thing” tour.

Recently, I had the opportunity to talk with Leon about his background, experiences as a musician and actor, and career highlights.
