You may know him as the son of R&B singer Brian Mcknight, but Mcknight Jr is much more than his name. Get to know Brian McKnight Jr(born 1990) and a little bit about his brother Niko(born 1992),too!
On touring with his dad singer Brian Mcknight:
“Wow. Me and my little brother Niko, 17, have been on the road with my dad going on 5 yrs now. Its been such a learning experience from a performing standpoint. I’ve always loved getting on a stage and singing for people, but to be able to watch my dad every night and take notes on how to talk to a crowd and lead a show has been a blessing. Being that i love traveling, being on tour has taken me places I’d always said I wanted to go. London, Paris, my favorites. Many of the islands. Asia, and Africa last year. If there is a venue, best believe we have played it haha.”
On his style:
“My style, let’s see. I’m real laid back, more of the jeans and a t-shirt kinda guy. But I spice it up with my shoes. Hightops and crazy colors. My little brother has got me into the skinny jean movement as of late, so I’ve been on my Levis 511’s haha. I love cleaning up though. Suits and tuxedos absolutely. A man should have a Suit for every occasion i say. The style I like for girls is Classy, yet unique, she should have her own little twist to it. She can’t be afraid to try new looks, keep me guessing.”
On new album due out soon:
“Me and Niko actually are planning to drop our Debut self-titled album “McKnight” this summer. It’s much different from anything else out there, we are trying to get music back to where it used to be. Real melodies, Strong lyrics. We would much appreciate the support!”
