ATLANTA, November 21, 2022 —The Alliance Theatre is excited to welcome celebrated musician Adam L. McKnight to the Hertz Stage for A Gift of Love with Adam L. McKnight. Along with several guest artists and friends, McKnight will perform popular hits from a variety of genres, beloved originals, and holiday standards for two weeks from December 723, 2022.


Drawing from his experiences as a support vocalist and studio musician for the likes of Elton John, CeeLo Green, Train, Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, Diana Ross, Gloria Estefan, Bonnie Raitt, Zac Brown Band, the Temptations, and many more, Adam is an entertainer and storyteller who puts his heart and soul into every song he performs.


“What I’ve learned through the years is that most people just love to hear me sing. They have maybe heard me in one genre or another, so I am excited to share my original music and the music of artists who have influenced me,” said McKnight. “I feel that the Christmas season is the time for giving and the time to spread love. Now, after these few years of all that we have endured around the world, I feel blessed to be able to share my gift of love through my music.”


Performing on-stage in bands since age 13, McKnight has settled in comfortably as not just a singer, but also an entertainer. Recently, he, along with his gospel choir Voice of Atlanta, recorded two songs for and appeared in the critically acclaimed movie, Till. In addition to devoting his daily efforts to writing and producing new music, McKnight gives back to the community by sharing his technical and artistic skills as Associate Artistic Director & Board Member for Ballethnic Dance Company.
