Oran "Juice" Jones (born March 28, 1957) is a retired American R&B singer.
Music Industry Career
He was the first musician signed to OBR Records, a subsidiary of Def Jam. His song "The Rain" became a hit in 1986, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. He followed it with "How to Love Again", a duet with labelmate Alyson Williams.
Jones earned two Grammy nominations for "The Rain" and released two more albums, but failed to have significant follow-up success. Two of his children, Oran II (who has also gone by Mookie) and Perri, have also gotten into the music business.
