Jordan Knight (born Jordan Nathaniel Marcel Knight, May 17, 1970, Dorchester, Massachusetts) is an American singer-songwriter best known as a singer in the boy band, New Kids on the Block (NKOTB), and actor which rose to fame in the 1980s and 1990s. He is best known for his distinctive falsetto style of singing, influenced by The Stylistics. After New Kids On The Block disbanded Jordan continued a solo career. He released 4 Top 40 singles, most famously for his hit song "Give It To You" in 1999 but since then he has failed to reach the Billboard Hot 100 again, Jordan has also done two studio albums, one remix album and 1 EP.

Jordan Knight was just close to 14 in 1984 when he joined New Kids On The Block. The band was assembled in Boston by producer Maurice Starr. His fellow members included his brother, Jonathan Knight, as well as Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood. Over the next few years Knight began teaching himself keyboard instruments and writing songs. Maurice Starr, the New Kids' producer, who also wrote much of the New Kids material, was reluctant to add the teenager's work to the band's repertoire.

New Kids on the Block sold over 70 million albums worldwide, generated hundreds of million of dollars of concert revenues, and paved the way for later boy bands like Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC. New Kids on the Block disbanded in 1994.
