If there's any silver lining to be found amid coronavirus quarantine, it's the sheer volume of surprise social media performances we're getting from our favorite musicians. The latest to bring his talents to Instagram Live is 90s R&B legend Brian McKnight.
With only his sultry voice and an electric piano to back him up, McKnight performed a stripped down set on Friday night (April 10) that, quite frankly, probably had a few people ready to strip down.
The surprise concert was planned in support of the World Health Organization and Global Citizen. McKnight even took requests from fans before the performance kicked off.
Catch a glimpse of the sultry set, below:
