Rahsaan Patterson is an African-American singer and actor, best known for portraying “The Kid” on the popular 1980s television show Kids Incorporated. He is a native of The Bronx, New York.
After appearing in a school talent show in 1984, Patterson auditioned for the television show Kids Incorporated. He was cast as “The Kid”, and remained on the show for the next few years. After Kids Incorporated, Patterson gained experience as a backup vocalist for several artists (including Kids co-star Martika). Following his vocal contributions on Colour Club’s self-titled album, as well as writing for other artists (his credits include Brandy’s platinum Top 5 smash “Baby”, and Tevin Campbell’s hit “Back to the World”), Patterson signed with MCA Records. Collaborating with Keith Crouch and Jamey Jaz, among others, released his own self-titled debut in 1997.
Receiving positive reviews from critics, the album failed to find a large audience (the single “Where You Are” did receive attention on R&B radio). Patterson did, however, develop a loyal following both in the United States and abroad.
Patterson went to work on his followup, Love in Stereo, with Jaz and new collaborators such as Van Hunt. When Love in Stereo was released in late 1999 it received better reviews than its predecessor, although the mainstream overlooked it.
Although Patterson and MCA parted ways, he remained busy, continuing to perform live, working as a session singer, and contributing to both soundtracks (Brown Sugar) and compilation albums (Steve Harvey’s Sign of Things to Come), while working on his next album.
After Hours, Patterson’s third album, was released internationally early in 2004, again garnering positive reviews. With the forming of his own label, After Hours was released in the United States in late October 2004.|
