A night with McKnight

2015-08-27 06:00

AWARD-WINNING singer, songwriter and producer Brian McKnight will perform in South Africa in September in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

McKnight has earned himself a spot in contemporary music history, having released 15 albums to date, with several reaching platinum, and has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

Known for his hit Back at One, which sold over three million copies, McKnight has worked with music heavyweights Quincy Jones, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Diddy, Christina Aguilera, Rascal Flatts, Nelly, Vanessa Williams, Willie Nelson and Kenny G, as well as hosted many television and radio shows. He will release his soulful 16th album Better, this month, with sounds and lyrics that echo how he is not only getting better with age, but also with life, love and music. “I’m taking it back to basics,” McKnight said of the album.

“Creating music like we did 20 years ago -completely organic, all real instruments. The truth is, I’m in love and love makes us better, it makes us come alive, and I wanted to convey that through this album in a very relatable, authentic way.”

Don’t miss out on a great evening of his best hits on September 16 at 8 pm at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban.
