Today I take a moment out to recognize a true artist and legend in the R&B and music world. Indianapolis’ very own Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
Babyface is a very accomplished singer and producer of both music and film. He is also a keyboardist, guitarist and songwriter. He has collaborated with the like of Toni Braxton, Outkast and Eric Clapton. He has written and produced for industry giants like Madonna, Whitney Houston, Prince, Beyonce and the Late Great Michael Jackson!
In his early years he was in a group called “The Deele” with industry Big Wig LA Reid. Here is “Shoot Em Up Movies”
Babyface has won 3 consecutive Grammy’s for Producer of the Year in the years 1996-1998. He also won the award back in 1993 with then music partner LA Reid.
Here is another classic under Mr. Edmonds belt.
Truly one blog wont begin to tell all of the accomplishments that Babyface has achieved over the last few decades. So I encourage you all to google and do homework on the Naptown Native. So now I will leave you with one of his biggest hits “Whip Appeal” from the 1989 “Tender Lover” Album with a guest cameo from Holly Robinson
