One of the biggest teen dreams of his era, Jordan Knight achieved global superstardom as a member of one of the most lucrative and popular teen idol acts ever, New Kids on the Block. The boy band raked in hundreds of millions of dollars by selling out arenas, moving oceans of merchandise, and scoring a string of smashes that included the chart toppers "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)," "Hangin' Tough" and "Step by Step" as well as additional hits like "Please Don't Go Girl" and "You Got It (The Right Stuff)." Thoroughly dominating their pop cultural era, NKOTB mania defined the childhoods of countless young girls, but by the mid-1990s, their moment was over, due in part to an ever-growing backlash. Knight, known as the band's vocally talented heartthrob, had co-written a 1990 No. 1 for Tommy Page, "I'll Be Your Everything," and launched a solo career with his 1999 self-titled debut, which included the sexy Top Ten hit "Give it to You." Although his solo career never completely crystallized, Knight remained active in music on his own as well as with his bandmates, who reunited for multiple projects, including a stint with Backstreet Boys known as NKOTBSB and a 2013 tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men known as The Package. Although the overwhelming, juggernaut shadow of New Kids on the Block proved impossible to escape, Jordan Knight remained a beloved icon to fans around the world, both new and old.
