Ashton Jones

Colton Entertainment, LLC

Top 13 finalist on Season 10 American Idol, Ashthon Jones is one of the most talented performers to hit the streets of Nashville. Being a singer, songwriter, dancer and all-around entertainer, Jennifer Lopez wasn't kidding when she described Ashthon as a "Diva". Randy Jackson said of Ashthon, "When you got it... you got it!" While she has that girl-next-door charm and a bright-eyed smile, she was also blessed with dangerous curves and the kind of voice that can turn private chaos into public art.

Most recently, Ashthon Jones, was featured artist and writer on "Mayday" on LeCrae's "Gravity" which reached #3 on the Billboard 200.

Born and raised between Valdosta, GA and Nashville, TN by a family of singers and musicians, like many legends before her Ashthon got her start by singing in the church choir. "I think because I grew up singing in church, I really like creating and performing uplifting feel-good music and inspiring people to be happy and live life. My favorite song of all-time is "Blessed Assurance", so I try to inject a positive vibe into everything that I write." She entered and won multiple talent shows as a child but it was when she sang "My Father's Eyes" alongside Contemporary Christian/Pop phenomenon Amy Grant in Nashville that 6 year-old Ashthon knew she had what it took to be a star. Influenced by the likes of Mary Mary, Shirley Caesar, Mariah Carey and many others, Ashthon's musical tastes are as diverse as her talent.

A run-away at 15, she never met her biological father and the man who helped raise her since birth passed away when she was 14. "My faith in God saved my life. Even when I was living on my own, I never strayed away from the core values I learned in Church. I want to be a beacon of hope for somebody out there who may not be in the best situation but can look at me and know someone who has weathered the storm." Ashthon is so resolute in her mission to reach the souls of people, that she is looking forward to working with various youth organizations, as well as launching her own foundation aimed at empowering young people. "My voice is a gift from God; so is my talent. There is a sweetness, as well as a rawness about me that I think anybody can relate to. If you put your heart into whatever you want, it will come to pass, I am a living example of that."
