Hire Brian McKnight for your festival or concert plans.
A talent of prodigious proportions early on, Brian McKnight was proficient on keyboards, guitar and trumpet by high school years and leading his first band, a jazz-fusion unit at the age of 17. After tenure at Oakwood, a Christian College in Huntsville, Alabama, he met longtime co-writing partner Brandon Barnes and began recording demos. He signed with the Mercury label at age 19.
His first album, 1992's "Brian McKnight" (which featured the classic ballad, "One Last
Cry"), and 1995's "I Remember You" (which included the sterling cover of
Van Morrison's "Crazy Love"), achieved platinum status.
Hire Brian McKnight to entertain your company's special event.
He produced tracks for
Boyz II Men's "Christmas Interpretations," scored a Top 3 duet with
Vanessa Williams' "Love Is," sang on Quincy Jones' "Q's Jook Joint," appeared on the soundtrack of "The Addams Family," performed "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)" on the NBA "AT 50" compilation, recorded with
Diana King the title track of the Academy Award-winning Muhammad Ali documentary, "When We
Kings," and has produced Take 6,
Chico DeBarge, and Xscape among others.
McKnight's blossoming brand power was in full effect in
1998 when Motown, Mercury's sister label, released Anytime. Collaboration-choked with such A-list players as songwriter Diane Warren,
Mary J. Blige, and the Trackmasters production team, the LP's combustive first single, the top 20 pop hit, "You Should Be
Mine," a collaboration with hip-hop superstar Sean "Puffy" Combs, immediately took off.
Hire Brian McKnight to entertain at that special anniversary.
However, it was McKnight's own "Anytime," the album's elegant, solemnly soulful title track,
that sparked a chart and sales run unprecedented in McKnight's career. "Anytime" garnered 11 award nominations including 2 Grammys (Pop and R&B Male Singer categories), American Music Award, MTV Music Award, Image Award, and Blockbuster Award and received a Soul Train Award for Best Male Singer. A triumphant concert tour showcased
McKnight as fans had never before witnessed under the white hot lights: dynamic, unusually self-assured, and funny.
Brian McKnight closed out 1998 with "Bethlehem," his very first collection of Christmas songs. He also participated in the inspirational soundtrack from the Dreamworks animated epic "Prince of Egypt" and the accompanying NBC-TV special. Mid-1999 saw McKnight duet with superstar
Mariah Carey, a
longtime McKnight fan, on the track "Whenever You Call," featured on Carey's multi-platinum #1's album package.
In 2004, McKnight co-wrote the song "Wait" with Australian
soul artist Guy
Sebastian, which appeared on Sebastian's Beautiful Life album.
In January 2018, Brian McKnight was nominated for two
NAACP Image Awards. He was nominated for Outstanding Male Artist and Outstanding
Album for Genesis (alongside
Mary J Blige).
