After a stint as a member of the R&B group Maniquin, Kenny regrouped and released his debut album Kenny Lattimore on Columbia Records in 1996. That set boasted a pair of Top 20 hits "Never Too Busy" and the perennial wedding favorite "For You". The huge success of the album earned Lattimore a win for Best New Artist at the NAACP Image Awards in 1996.[1]


He followed his debut up with another critically-acclaimed set of smouldering soul music when From The Soul Of Man was released in 1998, yielding the hits "Days Like This" and "If I Lose My Woman". After a short hiatus, the singer re-emerged with a new album and a new label. Arista Records would be the new home for Weekend whose title track was a radio favorite.

He married R&B singer Chanté Moore on January 1, 2002. In 2003, he and his wife recorded a duet album entitled Things That Lovers Do consisting of classic soul songs from the 70's and 80's plus two new original songs. The standout singles were the smooth & contemporary "Loveable (From Your Head To Your Toes)" and an upbeat funky cover of René & Angela's "You Don't Have To Cry". The music video for the latter featured a very pregnant Chante Moore shortly before she gave birth to the couple's son Kenny Jr. on April 10, 2003. Lattimore & Moore continued promoting the album with a hugely successful touring stage show.

The set will be lead off by dual singles, a slick Bryan Michael Cox production "Figure It Out", as well as "Make Me Like The Moon", a stirring gospel ballad co-written by Kenny and Chanté, and produced by Fred Hammond.
