2011 X Factor finalist and former member of The Risk, Ashley John-Baptiste released his debut single ‘Show The People (How To Love)’ on Christmas day (25/12/11) as a free download on Noisetrade.

‘Show The People (How To Love)’ was produced by Ian Copeland Green who has worked with Madonna, Britney Spears, J-LO, Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5, Michael Jackson and more and offers a current Pop, RnB Electro sound that has become popular in the charts over recent months

‘Show The People (How To Love)’ is a song John-Baptiste wrote while thinking about the current state of the world.

“It’s a song that recognizes that there’s a lot of corruption in the world and a lack of love and because of that, a lot of people don’t know how to love.” says John-Baptiste.

“I want this song to motivate and inspire people to be the best they can be and to love the society they live in. In light of the recent Boxing day murder’s it’s becoming increasingly apparent that we need more love in the world.”

John-Baptiste is a Christian and is determined to promote those values and inspirational messages through his music. It’s clear that he has a desire to a light in the mainstream music world and an artist of substance bringing songs that mean something and can uplift and inspire listeners who are Christian or not.

The response to ‘Show The People (How To Love)’ has been over-whelming with fans (given the name #Ashteroids by John-Baptiste) calling the song “inspiring,” “inspirational,” “amazing,” “meaningful,” and “brilliant”.

After leaving The X Factor during the live shows there was a lot of speculation as to why the Cambridge graduate left and the real reason for him walking away from the show.

“Having just left University, I felt like I needed to gain clarity on what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go.” says John-Baptiste.  “I felt that by leaving the group (sooner rather than later) I gave the boys the best chance to succeed, not only in the competition but also in the music industry.

There is no animosity between John-Baptiste and his former-mates Andy, Charlie and Derry. “We’re still mates and Ashford makes a great addition to the group” says John-Baptiste.

John-Baptiste is currently in the studio recording his debut album with top producers while planning a 2012 UK tour.
