Colton Ford will perform his new single, “Unity,” live at REBAR Chelsea (225 W 19) tonight. The title track from his latest EP, the song is a celebratory Pride anthem about coming together as brothers and sisters of the human race.
“Freedom and acceptance are something to celebrate,” says Colton Ford, “especially in this season of Pride! We have come a long way in our fight to be seen, heard, acknowledged and respected and we have a lot to be thankful for, but there is still work to be done, and we are more powerful doing it together than apart.”
The song follows Ford’s previous releases: “Stronger,” about a relationship with self and “Stay,” about a relationship with someone else. “Unity” expands on the theme of relationship, but focuses on the power of our coming together, united in our demand for change.
“It’s time that we work together and respect one another and our differences,” the 58-year-old continues from his NYC home. “Standing at odds with one another only weakens us.”
