Frank Ocean wows with acoustic performance at MTV's Video Music Awards

Gay R&B singer sings stripped-down version of Thinkin Bout You

Frank Ocean wows with acoustic performance at MTV's Video Music Awards

R&B singer Frank Ocean, who came out as a gay man earlier this summer, wowed the audience at Thursday night’s MTV Video Music Awards with a serenely acoustic version of the song Thinkin Bout You from his debut solo album Channel Orange.

Ocean followed a rather rowdy set from Rihanna A$AP Rocky and Calvin Harris and quickly calmed things down.

He performed in front of a faux campfire which helped to set the quiet tone as he started the song a cappella.

The performance and his soaring vocals drew quick praise from fellow performers including Lady Gaga who tweeted: ‘Watch frank ocean steal this whole show. I’m dead.’

Ocean’s album, Channel Orange, has achieved critical and commercial success, reaching the top of the US Billboard R&B chart. Ocean, 24, came out publicly in July when he published a screenshot of a text document on his tumblr that revealed his sexuality.
