I have been following Ricky Ford for over 5 years. I have seen him play as a one-man band, which is phenomenal, at my Houston Oilers cheerleaders reunion party at city center in Houston.
It is just fascinating to be able to be in his presence because as a performer he gives his heart and soul to his music. He is able to draw his audience in with him as the music takes over and we have to tap our feet, bob our heads, sway our bodies and eventually we are up dancing because Mr. Ford's energy overflows.
My daughter is getting married in November and although Mr. Ford will be out of town he has agreed to come back and perform for my daughter as she walks down the aisle. I am so blessed and fortunate that Mr. Ford who has played several times with the Houston Symphony and with greats such as Jennifer Holiday, Joe Sample and The Temptations, recognizes that while he has performed with legends, my daughter's wedding is not too small of a venue for him.
His stewardship for those who are in need of love flows through the music as he gives of his time to teach those who are less fortunate. Mr. Ford seems to be able to use his teaching ability as a form of music therapy for the lost, broken hearted and even disabled.
I recommend and support Mr. Ricky Ford as an artist whose abilities are second to none and a heart filled with a passion for music that moves Souls.
