Neo-Soul at it's finest!
Native New Yorker, Rahsaan Patterson is a seasoned entertainer, whose reputation for being extraordinarily gifted spans from his childhood acting career, cast as “The Kid,” on the popular 1980s television show, Kids Incorporated, to his sustained, enumerable accomplishments as a highly-regarded, successful Independent Contemporary Soul Music Artist, Songwriter, Producer and Music Executive.
After appearing in a school talent show in 1984, Patterson auditioned for the television show Kids Incorporated. Proving to be “a natural,” he undoubtedly landed the part and was cast as “The Kid”, remaining on the show for a number of years.
Onward and upward, Patterson continued to evolve, gaining experience as a backup vocalist for several artists (including Kids co-star Martika). Following his vocal contributions on Colour Club’s self-entitled album, as well as writing for other artists (his credits include Brandy’s platinum Top 5 smash “Baby”, and Tevin Campbell’s hit “Back to the World”), Patterson signed with MCA Records. Collaborating with Keith Crouch and Jamey Jaz, among others, he released his own self-entitled debut in 1997. Stirring rave reviews, the album launched Patterson into an even larger limelight (with the single “Where You Are” receiving widespread airplay on R&B radio). Patterson, soon after, developed global recognition, as well as a loyal following in the United States and abroad.
