an album of covers, but...," said Mykal about the new project.
Mykal Kilgore is a Broadway performer and Grammy
Award nominated singer/songwriter. The single "Man in the Barbershop" talks about his experience as a black man
in the neighborhood meeting place for most men - the barbershop.
"The barbershop is the centerpiece of the
black man's community," said Mykal.
About his tour coming to Rams Head on Stage Kilgore said to his fans,
"I love the DMV! I'll be in Maryland very soon. They (his fans) received me well after my first album, I like the audience
Mykal recently performed his single "The Man in the Barbershop" at the 2021 Met Gala in
New York. His credits on Broadway include "Motown the Musical," "Book of Mormon," and "Hair."
As an actor his credits also includes NBC's "The Wiz Live" and NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert."
"I've been in Motown...on Broadway, I did the national tour with ‘Book of Mormon'," Mykal said. He
also pointed out, "I'm a theatrical artist."
The new single is accompanied by a music video. His first
single off the "A Man Born Black" titled "Let Me Go" garnered him a Grammy Award nomination. The current
single "The Man in the Barbershop" was produced by Jamison Ross, Cory Irvin and John Michael Rouchell. The music
video for this single was directed by Alexander Golden.
His career in entertainment began, thanks to a suggestion
by Grammy Award winner Billy Porter, on Broadway. So inspiring was that suggestion from Porter that Florida native Mykal moved
to New York for Broadway. Not many who make the move to New York for Broadway become successful, but it was Mykal Kilgore's
"talent" that lit the way for him to become a Broadway Grammy nominated performer.
