BRIAN MCKNIGHT: Letting 'Sunshine' In

Comments (10)

By Karu F. Daniels, AOL Black Voices

(l-r) Sunshine Anderson and Brian MckNight will hit the road this spring for an R&B tour.Sunshine Anderson is hitting the road this spring.

The hip-hop soul diva has landed the gig as the opening act on the upcoming Brian McKnight tour, kicking off 10 dates beginning April 27 at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland. Additional tour dates below.

The lead single, 'Something I Wanna Give You' claimed the #1 spot on Billboard's Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart and spent over 3 months in the Top 15 at Urban AC radio.

Anderson, who seems to have been welcomed back from her 5 year hiatus with open arms by both the industry and the fans, has enjoyed a flurry of promotional activities in recent weeks including a performance at the CIAA Tournament Finals in her hometown of Charlotte, NC.

"We're very excited about the success of Sunshine's project," said Max Gousse, the Executive Vice President of her label, Music World Music. "We've had great support at radio, retail and video and the addition of the Brian McKnight tour is another key element of our comprehensive marketing plan. For Sunshine, being in front of the fans is what it's all about."
