Singer who went viral for sounding like Brian McKnight now professional recording artist


You may have seen how the impact of viral videos can be life changing for some.

That’s the case for a young man whose viral video of a song he posted saying he sounded just like Brian McKnight. The video of Aveon Foster got nearly 1.2 million views on YouTube.

CBS 42 News Anchor Art Franklin caught up with the man, born Aveon Foster, during his tour to Birmingham radio stations and youth groups and discovered he has gone from YouTube Sensation to a recording artist. 

The Warner Robbins, Georgia native now makes Atlanta his home. Right now he is working on a CD under the name P.M., which stands for Powerful Man, in New York with a production company called 53rd West. The CD is slated for release this fall.
