Ever since he was a child, Knight has esposed his talents. When he was seven years old, he was a part of the church choir; later in school he expanded his talents to dancing. His professional career began when he was 14 years old, as he was approached by his friend Donnie Wahlberg to join a boy band, whose manager and producer was Maurice Starr. Knight joined the band, and in addition, he called up his brother Jonathan Knight to join as well. The trio formed New Kids on the Block with two other members, Danny Wood and Joey McIntyre.

In 1986 came their first release, however, it was not greeted very well by the public, as the singles “Be My Girl” and “Stop it Girl” did not chart on any pop list. Nevertheless, the group did not surrender at the first obstacle and continued to record songs. In 1988, they released their second album entitled “Hangin` Tough”, which had five songs in the top 10 of the Billboard’s Hot 100 list. Needless is to say that Knight’s net worth benefited considerably from the success of this album, and since the release of “Hangin` Tough”, New Kids on the Block has sold over 70 million albums throughout the world; even their first release went platinum several times.

The band broke up in 1994, and Knight embarked on a solo career; in 1999 he released his debut single entitled “Give it To You”, which accomplished great commercial success, as it peaked at the 10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and also won a nomination for the MTV VMA Award for the Best Dance Video. Later that year, Knight released his first self-titled solo album, which sold over 500.000 copies. Furthermore, he released albums in 2011 and 2013 also as solo artist. Adding to his net worth and popularity, the “New Kids On The Block” reunited in 2008, and so far has released two new albums, in 2008 and 2013.

Overall, Knight`s career is very successful; his net worth has grown with every album released since 1986, and it continues to grow, as it was announced that New Kids on the Block will embark on a tour, and later enter the studio for another album. Throughout his career, Knight has collaborated with many notable artists of the American pop scene, including Nick Carter of the “Backstreet Boys”, Debbie Gibson and others.

Regarding his personal life, Knight has been married to Evelyn Mendez since 2004, with whom he has two sons.
