Rahsaan Patterson live in concert

Soul vocalist and songwriter Rahsaan Patterson is another in the line of new-school R&B singers who displayed a bit more integrity than most of the chart-toppers during the 1990s. After singing in church from the age of six, Patterson moved with his family from New York to California to star in the children's show KIDS Incorporated. He later moved back to the East Coast, resuming his career with small TV roles and assorted commercials, but returned to Los Angeles in the early '90s to record demos and contribute backing vocals to albums by Martika and Brandy, among others.
