Babyface Net Worth 2019 – Kenneth Brian Edmonds found a way around his shyness while growing up by penning down his emotions in songs. He also practiced with the guitar and keyboard at the time and a few decades later, he’s famous across the globe as Babyface (his professional moniker).
The American singer was born on April 10, 1959, in Indianapolis, Indiana, and named Kenneth Brian Edmonds by his African-American parents – Marvin (father) and Barbara Edmonds (mother), a pharmaceutical plant production operator.
Edmunds’ family had a hard time when their father died after a battle with lung cancer. He was an eight grader in North Central High School,
Indianapolis, at the time and was already writing songs to help him get over his shyness. Seeing his mother’s struggles in taking care of the family, Edmonds began to aspire for a career in music.
He worked with Bootsy Collins in his early days as a singer and also got his moniker “Babyface” from the American musician. His youthful appearance earned him the name.
Babyface also worked with the group known as Manchild, performing as a guitarist and equally played keyboards in the light-funk and R&B group known as the Deele.
The latter group introduced him to his future partner – drummer Antonio “L.A.” Reid. They remained in their positions in the Deele group until their exit in 1988. The duo embarked on writing and producing together and recorded much success.
His Slow Jam hit which he wrote for R&B band Midnight Star was met with rave reviews in 1983. The song formed part of the band’s No Parking on the Dance Floor album which received double-platinum.
Slow Jam also received a lot of radio airplay and more than three decades after its release, it can still be heard on radio stations.
So far in his productive career, Babyface has eight studio albums and six collaborative albums with both bands and solo artists.
The last of his collaborative offerings, released on February 4, 2014, became an awards darling. The duet album dubbed Love, Marriage & Divorce was done with Toni Braxton.
In 2009, Soda Pop Records was launched by the star under which he signed R&B superstars K-Ci & JoJo. Asides singing, writing, and producing music, Babyface has also dabbled into acting.
He made an appearance and also performed on an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. He also collaborated with his ex-wife Tracey Edmonds in setting up Edmonds Entertainment Group through which they produced films like Soul Food (1997) and Josie and the Pussycats(2001) to critical acclaim. Other productions were also carried out under the stable.
