Born in Buffalo, New York, McKnight's musical career began in childhood when he became a member of his church NY choir and a bandleader for his high school, Sweet Home High School. By the age of 19, he signed his first recording deal with Mercury Records. In 1992, his self-titled album Brian McKnight was released followed by I Remember You (1995), and Anytime (1997). Anytime sold over two million copies and was nominated for a Grammy®. In 1999, McKnight released Back at One on Motown Records, which sold over three million copies.

Along with several Grammy® nominations, McKnight has been the recipient of American Music Awards, Soul Train Awards, NAACP Image and Blockbuster Awards, and Billboard Songwriter of The Year.

McKnight has also used his vast industry knowledge as a red carpet host for Extra! and in 2007, McKnight stepped into Broadway with a successful run as Billy Flynn in Chicago. He was also a contestant on the Donald Trump hit show Celebrity Apprentice.
