Biography:
 
Born on 5 June 1969 in Buffalo, New York, Brian McKnight grew up as a member of the church choir. With a gospel background, McKnight explored other genres of music. In his early teens, he exercised writing soft jazz instrumentals and performed his originals with his band at local venues.

After sending out several demo tapes to various record companies, McKnight’s demo tape caught the attention of Mercury Records' president who was so impressed with his voice. Within two weeks, McKnight was signed to a record deal. His first release on Mercury, 'The Way Love Goes', reached number 11 after 19 weeks on the Billboard R&B charts. His next single, 'Love Is', a duet with Vanessa Williams, reached number 3 on the Billboard pop charts.

Besides being a singer, McKnight is a songwriter, multi-talented musician, arranger, and producer. He released his album, Anytime (1997) which features the single 'You Should Be Mine', followed by a Christmas album, Bethlehem (1998), Back at One (1999), Superhero (2001) and U Turn (2003).

A divorce and some time playing guard for the California ABA basketball team (The Ontario Warriors), McKnight kept out of the music industry for a couple of years before Gemini (2005) marked his return.
