Color Me Badd: Where Are They Now?
If you're a fan of boy bands, you may be wondering, "Color Me Badd: where are they now?" This multi-racial group served many fans with hits, 'I Wanna Sex You Up’; All 4 Love', and 'I Adore Mi Amore.' However, after attempts to mimic the huge success of their first album, they went from Color Me Badd to Color Me Gone. Their music sticks with us, but if you are one of the many fans wondering where are they now, read this article for updates on each member.
- Bryan Abrams. Abrams is the lead singer of Color Me Badd and if you wondered where he is at now, you are in for a surprise. Ironically, he resembles George Michaels and just like Michaels, has his own series of run ins with the law. In 2008, he made a scene in a restaurant threatening his girlfriend to take both of their lives and arrested for intoxication, and in the summer of 2010, arrested and for alleged domestic abuse for punching his wife in the face in their Hawaii home. As for good news, Abrams released a solo album, ‘Welcome to Me’ and starred in ‘Mission: Manband’, a 2007 Vh1 reality show with other three former boy band members Chris Kirkpatrick, Jeff Timmons and Rich Cronin, forming their own band. Despite the talent, he too joins a long list of celebrities with major personal problems of his own, and lives up to his group name.
- Sam Watters. The opposite of Bryan Adams, Color Me Badd's member Sam Watters is doing well for himself. After his career with Color Me Badd, Watters moved on to better things, producing and writing hits songs for popular artists, Natasha Bedingfield, Kelly Clarkson, Sean Kingston, The Pussycat Dolls and Fantasia Barrino. Other than his professional life, his personal life bloomed, as he married former American Idol alum Tamyra Gray in 2006 and gave birth to their first child in July 2010.
- Kevin Thornton and Mark Calderon. While Abrams is busy keeping a name for himself in the crime section of newspapers and Watters is sailing through with a successful music career, both Thornton and Calderon went down completely different paths. The former Color Me Badd members decided to market themselves in another genre other than R&B, Christian music. Thornton gave his heart to the Lord in 1997. In 2008, he made his first debut album, ‘Conversion’, while Calderon also transited from R&B to Christian music releasing his first single, ‘He’ll Be There’.
- Color Me Badd, back on the map? In 2009, Color Me Badd (excluding Sam Watters) was to perform a reunion concert in their hometown Oklahoma over more than a decade. Unfortunately, the reunion was a no go since Color Me Badd wanted more money than the concert organizers can promise. What looks like a revival and possibly a comeback never went through for fans who happily love to see them all perform again but in 2010, they appeared on DirectTV’s Rock and a Hardplace, raising funds for a local charity group in Los Angeles.
