Come Through For You
by Javier Colon
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Universal Motown Records Group
Javier Colon had released two major-label flops before he won the inaugural season of the TV singing competition The Voice. After a switch from contemporary R&B to smooth pop-rock, he sounds comfortable amid his new surroundings on Come Through For You. On "Raise Your Hand," he calls on the audience to recognize that everyone hurts, and he weaves a story about a man who suspects his wife of an affair on "OK, Here's the Truth." The arrangements are a bit bland, yet Colon sings these songs with conviction. He knows it might be his last shot at stardom.
