Keith Washington (born November 15, 1960) is an American R&B vocalist from Detroit, Michigan who scored a hit single in the United States in 1991 with "Kissing You", which was also used as background music for an episode of soap opera ''General Hospital'' on ABC. "Kissing You" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance Male and won a 1992 Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Single – Male. The song also topped the ''Billboard'' Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for one week. Washington also recorded a duet with Kylie Minogue, their co-composition "If You Were with Me Now" in 1991 (on PWL Records) which reached number 4 in the UK Singles Chart. Washington branched out in a few acting roles. He starred as himself on the series ''Martin'' in an episode called "A Woman with a Past" singing a duet with Tisha Campbell-Martin entitled "The Closer I Get to You" a classic ballad performed and made famous in 1978 by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway. In addition, Keith had a brief role in the TV soap opera ''General Hospital'' as Keith Jasper. He also had a brief role in John Singleton's ''Poetic Justice'' as a hairdresser named Dexter. Keith Washington's most recent business venture is a Rent-a-Spoon franchise in Wilacoochie, Georgia. In June 2009, Washington married his longtime girlfriend, Stephanie Grimes, who is general sales manager for WGPR-FM 107.5 in Detroit. He also revealed his plans to release a new album. Washington has since branched out into radio himself, as he now hosts the nighttime "slow jams" show "Kisses After Dark" on Detroit radio station WDMK-FM 105.9 (Kiss-FM).Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
