Jordan Knight (born May 17, 1970, in Worcester, Massachusetts) is best known as the Lead Singer & "heartthrob" of the boy band New Kids On The Block.
He released his eponymous solo album in 1999, which was certified Gold by the RIAA in 2000 for sales of over 500,000 copies in the US. The album included his only top-ten hit, "Give It To You" (which sold over 1 Million certified copies), which was nominated for a 1999 MTV Video Music Award for Best Dance Video. The album Jordan Knight won an Aspire Music Award for Best Male Album (Pop). He became a father on August 25, 1999 to a son, Dante Jordan.
He was on the television show "The Surreal Life" with other B-list celebrities in 2004.
In 2005, Knight appeared on the British show "Hit Me Baby One More Time", where he performed "Give It To You", as well as a cover of "Let Me Love You" by Mario.
In September 2005, he also starred in a British documentary on five in the UK called Trust Me - I'm A Holiday Rep. Six celebrities spent 10 days in the role of an Olympic Holidays holiday rep in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. He initially lacked enthusiasm for the role, which he blamed to some extent on his shyness, but came to enjoy it. In his final debriefing he earned praise from the head reps, who said they would (hypothetically) offer him a job as a children's and transfer rep. Throughout the show he remained intrigued by guests' topless sunbathing, which is not common in the USA. He continues to tour extensively in the year 2005/2006 promoting his new EP The Fix, as well as his long awaited Second Album due in the summer of 2006.
