Kevon Edmonds Bio
Kevon Edmonds is an American singer, songwriter, producer and actor.
Kevon Edmonds, one of six brothers, formed the group After 7 with his brother Melvin and classmate Keith Mitchell while attending Indiana University in 1988. As lead singer, he took the ensemble to the Top 10 singles chart eleven times — twice to Number One with “Ready or Not” and “Can’t Stop.” Signed to Virgin Records and a production deal with LaFace — L.A.

This is so sad to me as Melvin was my group favorite (because he was singing to me). Prayers for this ultra-talented family, Kevon Edmonds, Babyface and all. R.I.P. Melvin Edmonds. #After7 https://t.co/ao98so2ktn

When the band dissolved in 1997, Kevon worked with LaFace productions, contributing to film soundtracks, adding background vocals to LaFace artists’ albums, gathering talent for studio-session choirs, and acting as songwriter and executive co-producer (with Babyface) on his RCA Records solo debut, 24/7. The 1999 release was certified Gold, and the title track climbed to #2 on the charts.
