After gracing the Malaysian crowd back in 2014, Grammy-nominated R&B crooner Brian McKnight is returning to the country’s shores once again to entice his fans.
The famed music icon who is most recognised for his strong falsetto and belting range, will be showcasing his talent to the audience at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on 9 April 2017.
McKnight is a multi-instrumentalist who plays eight instruments including the piano, guitar, bass guitar, percussion, trombone, tuba, flugelhorn and trumpet. He is also one of the very few leggiero tenors in the pop genre.
