As we continue the Weekend Review’s “Mini Concert Series”, I will be featuring R&B singer, songwriter, and producer, Babyface. Babyface was born Kenneth Edmonds in Indianapolis, IN. and was tagged with the nickname “Babyface” by Funk legend Bootsy Coolins.
In the early 80’s Babyface and teamed up with “L.A” Reid and formed the urban funk group “The Deele” where they wrote and produced a number of hits for themselves and other artists. Babyface has also wrote and produced for artists such as Peebles, The Whispers, Bobby Brown, Sheena Easton and Karyn White to name a few. So, check out some of your favorite songs from Babyface during this weekends Mini Concert Series.
