Come see Brian McKnight live in concert inside the Eastside Event Center at the Eastside Cannery on Saturday February 23, 8:30 p.m.
Born June 5, 1969 in Buffalo, NY.
Brian was a musical child in a musical family. Growing up, he was a member of his church choir the fifth generation of Seventh Day Adventists and the youngest of four brothers and in high school, he was a bandleader. Others in his family have musical talent as well: when Brian was still small, he and his brothers formed a musical quartet, with their role models being Gospel groups like the Swan Silvertones and the Mighty Clouds of Joy.
Brian wound up recording three albums while signed to Mercury. His eponymous debut came in 1992, then his second LP, I Remember You followed in 1995. But it was Brian’s third and final album for Mercury, 1997′s Anytime, that saw McKnight blossom into an R&B superstar. Anytime went double platinum in the U.S. (selling over two million copies) and was nominated for a Grammy.
