Despite his strong Christian upbringing, Season 14 American Idol finalist, Rayvon Owen, decides to open up to his fans about his sexuality in his new music video “Can’t Fight It.”
Owen talks to Billboard about his decision to open up about his sexual orientation.
“Someone I knew passed away. He never got to live his truth, and there are many people who die young and never get to leave their mark or make a difference.”
He also talks about his decision to merge his music with his personal life.
“First I had to become comfortable with myself and who I am as a person. For the longest time I kept that part of my life separate, away from music, away from a lot of things. As I was growing as an artist, I realized I was missing out on so much of my artistry by not connecting the two.”

This song really great! The concept of the video makes sense of the idea behind the lyrics with the added shock factor at the end. I think this is something that a lot of us, as gay men, can relate to. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more from Mr. Owen.
