About Kenny Lattimore
Kenny Lattimore grew up in a musical family in the Washington, D.C. area and was singing from an early age. As his family was supportive of his efforts, he was entered into junior-high talent shows and singing competitions earning confidence and winning performances. He attended high school at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, Maryland. For a while he considered that he may become an architect or be involved in city planning. He studied at Howard University however soon after became lead singer of the R&B group, Maniquin.
He moved to Los Angeles in 1993 and for a time was supporting himself by accruing credit card debt. With the group, Kenny was involved in the release of an album with the lead single “I Wanna Ride”. However, despite the developments made, Maniquin didn’t go anywhere and instead Kenny decided to try and make it as a solo artist. After investing much of his time in songwriting, some of his songs were licensed to other singers including Glenn Jones and Jon Lucien. With some success as a songwriter, Kenny relocated to New York City where he signed a solo recording deal with Columbia Records. He released his self-titled debut album, in 1996.
With over half a million copies sold, the album was certified Gold by the RIAA. The hit single “Never Too Busy” and the wedding song “For You,” were the foundation of the albums success. His sophomore album From the Soul of a Man was released in 1998, and Weekend in 2001. Despite it reinventing his image and giving him a reputation as a smooth ladies’ man, the albums were not met with commercial success.
After marrying Chante Moore in 2002, and taking a short hiatus, the couple recorded a duet album before transitioning back into their solo careers. Kenny released Timeless in 2008, and Anatomy of a Love Song in 2015, Vulnerable in 2017 and Here to Stay in 2021.
