Music icon to serenade Filipino fans anew
Platinum recording artist Brian McKnight returns to Manila for a night of unforgettable music on June 20, 8 p.m., at the Kia Theatre in Cubao, Quezon City.
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.
McKnight, whose discography includes 16 albums, returns to his soulful roots on his new record with 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,” the 47-year-old artist 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.”
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.
