With an uncanny knack to make a cover his own and his originals familiar, Melvin C McKnight aka Blaqmel is a stage/studio singer, songwriter, band leader, and musician who plays like Jimi Hendrix, jumps around the stage like Lynn Swann, yet, is soulful and passionate as he delivers intimate one-on-one experiences with his audience. He's toured with TM Stevens’ touring band, the Trammps, and John Legend as well as opened for Schoolly D, Leela James, Will Downing, and Jazmine Sullivan.
