Beverley Knight Career

  • Late in the year 1994, Knight entered into a recording agreement with Dome Records, a modest and independent record label. In a short amount of time following that, she entered a recording studio to compose and record her debut album.
  • The London production group 2B3 was responsible for the bulk of the record’s production, while Don E (Knight’s cousin), Ethnic Boyz, and the hip-hop outfit Blak Twang contributed additional beats.
  • The project was produced in London. The German songwriting and production duo Klarmann/Weber, who are responsible for songs written by Chaka Khan and Randy Crawford, also contributed two tracks.                                                                                                         
  • This resulted in the recording of the album known as The B-Funk, which, upon its initial release in November 1995, was lauded by her record label as “the best British soul album ever”.
  • After several disagreements with Dome Records, in February of 1997, Knight departed the label and signed a new contract with Parlophone, which was controlled by EMI, for a total of four albums. In August of 1998, after going back into the studio with 2B3 and Don E as well as joining up with new producers Dj Dodge and Carl McIntosh, Knight released her second album titled Prodigal Sista.
  • By making an appearance on the music show Just the Two of Us, which airs on BBC1, in February of 2006, Knight was able to further solidify her entrance into the mainstream audience.
  • The event, which aired for two weeks and included celebrities who dueted with known artists, was deemed to be a relative letdown in terms of viewing figures, with audience shares averaging between 15 and 25 percent throughout the show’s run.
  • Nashville was the location where Knight recorded her fifth studio album, titled Music City Soul, in October of 2006. The album was finished in fewer than five days and was released on May 7th, 2007. It features collaborations with musicians such as Ronnie Wood and Scotty Moore and was completed in less than five days.
  • In 2013, Knight had an appearance on the album Saturday Night at the Movies, which was released by The Overtones and which debuted in the top five on the UK album chart. The song “Hit the Road, Jack” included Knight as a guest artist.
  • On September 9, 2013, Keira Knight replaced Heather Headley as the actress cast in the part of Rachel Marron in the musical adaption of The Bodyguard. Houston had originated the role of Rachel Marron in the 1992 film version of The Bodyguard.
  • It was revealed in 2015 that she would play Grizabella in the revival of Cats that was going to take place at the London Palladium in 2015. During the Royal Variety Performance in 2015, she gave a performance of a song from the musical Cats.
  • Sylvia is a hip-hop inspired musical that is based on the Suffragette struggle and Sylvia Pankhurst’s life. It was reported in October 2022 that Knight would be returning to the West End to perform as Emmeline Pankhurst in the musical.
  • In order to promote the show, Knight made an appearance on an edition of “The Graham Norton Show” that aired on January 13, 2023. The Old Vic is scheduled to host performances of Sylvia beginning in January and running through April of 2023.
  • Knight made the announcement in June 2023 that he would be releasing a new studio album in September 2023 named The Fifth Chapter. The album was slated to be released at that time. The song “Last One On My Mind” served as the debut single for the album and was issued on June 9th, 2023.
  • “Systematic Overload” is the second single from the album, and it was released on August 17, 2023. On the 16th of September 2023, Knight performed the track on stage at the Radio 2 in the Park event, which was hosted in Victoria Park, Leicester.
  • She also sang some of her other successes during the event. On September 29, 2023, The Fifth Chapter was made available to the public, and it was met with favorable reviews. It peaked at number 39 on the UK Albums Chart.
