Legendary R&B singer Keith Sweat will be live at City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, May 5.
Sweat’s album released in 2011, ‘Til the Morning has the singer/songwriter returning to his roots with songs like the album's seductive lead single, "Make You Say Ooh," and romantic tracks like “I Want Her” and “Make It Last Forever.” The album’s title track was even the #1 most added at Urban AC radio the week of release. ‘Till the Morning also features collaborations with Sweat’s former LSG members Johnny Gill and the late Gerald Levert, as well as Coko (SWV) and T-Pain.
Born in Harlem, New York, Sweat originally worked for the commodities market at the New York Stock Exchange before he was discovered singing at a nightclub in 1987. In November of the same year, he released his debut album, Make It Last Forever, which sold more than three million copies. On the R&B charts, “I Want Her” hit #1 and the title track reached #2. His next album, I'll Give All My Love To You, hit #3 on the Billboard 200 chart, and Keep It Comin’ debuted in the Top 20 on the album charts. Sweat released his fourth album Get Up On It in the summer of 1994 and followed with his self-titled album, Keith Sweat in 1996, which hit #5 on the Billboard 200 and gained quadruple platinum status. The single “Twisted” hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and “Nobody” reached #3. In 2008, Sweat released Just Me, followed by Ridin’ Solo in 2010. The R&B and pop icon has sold more than 25 million records.
After much success as a recording artist, Sweat ventured into the producing side of the business. In 1992, he discovered the group Silk and produced their debut album which resulted in a #1 hit, “Freak Me.” In 1995, he did the same for R&B group, Kut Klose. Sweat then helped form his own super R&B group with Gerald Levert and Johnny Gill called LSG in 1997. LSG released two albums that sold more than three million units and singles.
In addition to making music and touring, Sweat hosts two radio shows, “The Quiet Storm” and the #1 nationally syndicated Urban AC evening radio show, “The Sweat Hotel.” Now a published author, Sweat released a relationship book titled Make It Last Forever: The Do’s and the Don’ts, available wherever books are sold.
