Melvin Edmonds Biography – Melvin Edmonds Wiki

Melvin Edmonds was a founding member of Indianapolis R&B group After 7 and older brother of Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.

The roots of After 7 trace to when Kevon met Arlington High School alum Keith Mitchell on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University, where they were members of the IU Soul Revue.

Before After 7 signed a recording contract with Virgin Records, Kevon worked at Eli Lilly and Co., Mitchell worked at John Hancock in Chicago and Melvin worked at Chrysler Corp. in Indianapolis.

After 7 landed three singles in the Top 20 of Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart in the early 1990s: “Can’t Stop,” “Ready or Not” and “Heat of the Moment.” A 2016 comeback album, “Timeless,” sent three songs — “Runnin’ Out,” “I Want You” and “Let Me Know” — into the Top 10 of Billboard’s adult R&B songs chart.

After 7 was nominated for a Grammy in the category of best R&B performance by a duo or group for 1990 single “Can’t Stop.” After 7 won an NAACP Image Award for best new male artist or group that year.

Melvin exited the lineup of After 7 following the release of the group’s third album, “Reflections,” in 1995. His son, Jason, joined Kevon Edmonds and Mitchell in After 7 when the group re-emerged as a touring entity following Kevon’s solo debut, 1999’s “24/7.”
