MotorCity Casino Hotel will welcome Teddy Riley and Blackstreet with special guests K'Jon and Elijah Connor to Sound Board on Sunday, May 11, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
Considered as one of the top R&B vocal groups of the '90s, Blackstreet, was founded in 1991 by singer, producer, and new jack swing pioneer Teddy Riley after the breakup of the trio Guy, and Chauncey Hannibal a.k.a. "C. Black". The group enjoyed significant success with hits like, "Before I let you go", a Top Five hit on the R&B charts and "No Diggity," which featured special guest Dr. Dre. "No Diggity" spent four weeks on top of the pop charts and won a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal by a Duo or Group.
Detroit native, K'Jon began singing at the age of eight and what started out as a hobby began to morph into a career. In 2004, he had the honor of having his song, "Miami," featured on the soundtrack for 2Fast 2Furious. He has opened for everyone from Ludacris and Ne-Yo to Raheem DeVaughn. While K'Jon's music is well suited to Detroit's ballroom culture, the appeal is much wider. Whether you're holding up the wall in a Brooklyn club, roller-blading in Santa Monica or two-stepping in Chicago, K'Jon's music fits. To learn more about K'Jon visit: http://www.k-jon.com
