Music icon Brian McKnight to serenade fans at Kia Theatre
Filipinos easily became fans of the musician thanks to his collection of hits like “Back at One” and “One Last Cry,” to name a few.
The multi-awarded singer-songwriter and producer is currently on a world tour to promote his 13th studio album “Better,” which he considers to be a throwback to the albums he made early in his career.
With 16 albums to date, McKnight returns to his soulful roots on his new record; featuring 12 relatable and touching songs. He worked with Hawaiian vocalist Kimie Miner and rapper Glasses Moses on the new project, which also includes long-time guitarists Chris Loftin and Tyrone Chase.
“I’m taking it back to basics,” Brian explains. “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.”
The title track of his album “Better” has received positive reviews online since it was released on February 26. It includes tracks like “Just Enough,” and “Get U Into My Life,” among others.
McKnight’s musical career began in 1992 when he released his eponymous album, which then featured his highest-charting single “One Last Cry.” His video for “Anytime” was nominated for Best Male Video at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.
Along with 16 Grammy Awards nominations, McKnight has also been the recipient of Soul Train Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Songwriter of The Year. His most notable album, Back At One, sold over 3 million copies.
His passion to create new sound also allowed him to collaborate with famous artists in the industry, among them Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, P. Diddy, Christina Aguilera, Rascal Flatts, Nelly, Vanessa Williams, Willie Nelson, and Kenny G. This allowed him to constantly evolve and improve as an artist.
