Description

International R&B singer Kenny Lattimore embodies the elements of traditional R&B with a decidedly contemporary flare and feel. He has established himself as a soulful song stylist of the first order, receiving the NAACP Image Award for Best New Artist and nominations for Grammy, Soul Train, and Stellar Awards. Whether putting a distinctive stamp on classic songs recorded by such musical icons as Donny Hathaway (“I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know”) and George Harrison (“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”), or creating his own legacy of hits such as “Never Too Busy” and the wedding ballad “For You,” Lattimore’s style combines passion, sensuality, intensity, and subtlety, making him one of today’s premier male vocalists.

Lattimore’s vocals have graced albums by such diverse musical colleagues as Musiq Soulchild, Rachelle Ferrell, Nancy Wilson, and Brian Culbertson. Known for his dramatic stage shows, vocal agility, and ability to create romantic ambiance, he has been hailed as a “modern soul man” on stage by The New York Times. Although music is his dominant muse, Lattimore has also loaned his talents to the worlds of TV, film, and theater. He has appeared on numerous television shows, including The Young and The Restless, The Parkers, and Abby; in films like The Seat Filler (2004); and in the plays Love Him is Killing Me, Heavenbound, A Change is Gonna Come, and _Whatever Happened to Black Love? _In addition, Lattimore has also extended his influence to several nonprofit organizations and has founded his own, The Kenny Lattimore Foundation, which uses mentoring, education, and the arts to transform the lives of young people.

Lattimore’s releases include his 1996 eponymous debut, _From the Soul of Man , Weekend _(2001), Things That Lovers Do (2003), and _Timeless _(2008). He’s currently hard at work on his next original recording, titled Back 2 Cool, which is slated for release on June 19th. The man that the Washington Post has declared “a new master of the new soul” remains committed to making expressive and enduring music that, above all, gives him the freedom to be himself.
