As if I needed a reason to be more enamored by my brothers across the pond; British singer/actor and sometimes model Leon Lopez has just given me another reason. British audiences are familiar with the work of this multi-talented artist from his work in the soap opera Brookside and his recurring role on Hollyoaks: In The City. Lopez first caught my on the pages of MOC (Men Of Color) London's amazing publication for gay men of color.

Lopez recently released his first single 'Love Got In The Way' from his debut album 'Movin On' and was a featured performer during London's recent black gay pride celebration.

Late last year Lopez was added to the list of talented performers to play the role of Tom Collins in the UK production of Jonathan Larson's RENT to rave reviews. The role was originated on Broadway in the mid nineties by Jesse L. Martin and will officially close next month.

Fans old and new can see Leon onstage currently in a limited run of the musical Piaf at the Donmar Warehouse in the London Borough of Camden.

Get into the eye candy above and Leon's video for his first single 'Love Got In The Way' below.
