She said she had a boyfriend but he didn't come to Artscape. “Well then, I was wondering, can I be your boyfriend for the next five or six minutes,” asked the multi-platinum R&B singer Brian McKnight to the fan he plucked from the crowd. As she sat on a stool in the middle of the Wells Fargo stage in mid-town Belvedere Friday night, her smile beamed on the big screen. To the surprise of no one (except perhaps that boyfriend), she agreed. McKnight, in the middle of his 75-minute headlining set, began serenading her with “Another You,” from his 2009 album “Evolution of a Man.” Toward the end of the song, the new couple stood up and McKnight embraced her in a tender hug, to envious screams.

For the past seven years, Darnella Parks and her entire family - from toddler nieces to her 84-year-old grandmother - have attended Artscape. They come for the crafts, the food and, most of all, the live entertainment. But this year, the 33-year-old Towson resident and her family are skipping Friday's opening night - not because of the heat or the crowds, but because of the music. Brian McKnight, the 16-time Grammy nominee who for years built a reputation as a clean-cut, R&B ladies' man, is scheduled to take Artscape's main stage Friday night.

As a Baltimore City resident, I have enjoyed attending the Artscape Festival every year. Each year it's been a wonderful and fun family event where I can take my children and they can enjoy the food, craft booths, kids' activities and music. This year, however, something has come up that concerns me and threatens my ability to enjoy this event with my children. Recently it was announced that Brian McKnight, a popular R&B artist, would headline this year's festival, performing on the main stage July 20. I have to imagine that the event's organizers and those responsible for booking musical talent were aware of the recent controversy over Mr. McKnight's disgusting music, which makes me wonder all the more why anyone would think he is appropriate as a headliner for a family event.
