Kenneth Brian Edmonds, who is popularly known as Babyface, is a famous American R&B and pop singer, who is also a songwriter, guitarist, keyboardist, record producer, film producer, and entrepreneur at the same time. He was born April 10, 1958, in Indianapolis.
Edmonds had attended North Central High School in Indianapolis and he used to be a shy kind of boy in his teens. But he had an extra ordinary talent, to write songs as an expression of his emotions.
At later times, Edmonds had got a chance to play with funk megastar Bootsy Collins, who had given him the title of Babyface while he was still a teen, and the nickname had proved to be so suitable that it had been carrying with him for all of his later life.
He had also played in the groups Manchild, then in the light-funk and R&B group The Deele. The major breakthrough in his life as a songwriter for outside artists came, when he had written the tune of Slow Jam for the R&B band Midnight Star in 1983.
The tune had been very famous and had appeared on Midnight Star's double-platinum No Parking on the Dance Floor album. It is also interesting to know that the tune had really captured the minds and hearts of people, even before hitting the charts.
It had proved to become a symbol and a semi-classic of the genre. Babyface had been in the The Deele until 1988, when both he and Reid left the group.
He had generated his very own style of writing music and for the creation of new jack swing for the likes of Bobby Brown, Karyn White, Pebbles and Paula Abdul. In 1989, Edmonds had also co-founded LaFace Records with Reid.

Braxton's debut album in the year of 1993, had been sold over eight-million copies, and earned her a Grammy Award as the year's best new artist in 1994. Meanwhile, TLC's two albums on LaFace ? 1992's Ooooooohhh....
On the TLC Tip and 1994's CrazySexyCool, had jointly sold more than 15 million copies in the U.S., and quite interestingly the CrazySexyCool had won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best R&B album.
