Gerald Alston (born November 8, 1951) is an American R&B singer, and the lead singer with the Manhattans. Between 1988 and 1995, he left the group to record five albums (later recording his tribute to Sam Cooke in 2008) and ten solo singles, including "Take Me Where You Want To," "Slow Motion," a remake of Atlantic Starr's "Send For Me," and "Activated," most of which was for Motown Records.

He joined the Manhattans in 1970, shortly after the death of their former lead singer George Smith and helped the group remain a fixture on the R&B top ten as lead on songs like "Kiss And Say Goodbye," "There's No Me Without You", and "Shining Star". He is the nephew of Shirley Alston Reeves, former lead singer of The Shirelles and rejoined the group in 1995 after finding that "his solo career wasn't what he thought it would have been." (quote from A Touch Of Classic Soul of the Early 1980s - Marc Taylor, pg. 170.) He is also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. He was initiated into the Alpha Kappa chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi in Spring of 1970.
