Singer Frank Ocean, who last week bravely shared details of his first love, made his television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday. The singer performed "Bad Religion," a song from his debut album Channel Orange. The song reportedly alludes to a time a man broke Ocean's heart:

I could never make him love me
Never make him love me
Love
Love
It's a bad religion
To be in love with someone
Who could never love you
Watch the amazing performance:

Since posting an emotional letter on his Tumblr last week, Ocean has received support from some of the most high profile names in music.

Beyoncé posted a photo of Ocean on her official website on which she wrote a poem supporting the singer, who was a co-writer on her song "I Miss You." 

Beyoncé's husband, Jay-Z, posted a letter from Dream Hampton to Ocean on his website Life + Times. Hampton said that when he sent the letter to Jay-Z he "put it on his site in minutes."

Several other figures from the music world, including Russell Simmons, Rita Ora, Solange Knowles, Tyler the Creator, Anthony Hamilton,and others, have expressed support for Ocean. It's encouraging to see so many powerful people stand behind the talented artist!
