Mykal Kilgore’s artistry cuts through traditional barriers and represents the hope of gospel, the soul of R&B, and the vulnerability of country. His debut release, A Man Born Black, is an exploration of faith, loss, the stumble and spills on the way to maturity, and the beauty of hope and love.
A born and raised Floridian, Mykal moved to Nashville, TN as a hopeful singer and songwriter. Eventually, his voice caught the attention of Tony® and GRAMMY® Award winner, Billy Porter, while singing during an audition. Porter’s careful mentorship opened lanes for Kilgore to move to New York City and to enter the Broadway world. To date, his credits include Motown the Musical, The Book of Mormon, and Hair. Mykal has consistently chosen projects that elevate positive representations of people of color, including The Wiz Live! (NBC) and Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert (NBC). His gospel-themed song “Reclaiming My Time” video garnered over 10 million views in one-week.
