Kevon Edmonds (born February 25, 1958) is an American singer and actor. He is member of the R&B group After 7. Edmonds is also the older brother of producer, songwriter, and singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds.
Edmonds was born in Indianapolis in 1958. As a member of After 7, Edmonds had successes, earning a platinum album as well as several gold singles. They continued to tour the country and established themselves as one of R&B's top-performing groups. After their 1995 album, Reflections, After 7 left Virgin Records due to issues with the label. The departure from Virgin Records allowed the members to pursue their own personal projects and over time, saw the group separate.
Edmonds then appeared with Babyface and K-Ci & JoJo for a project in a fictional group called Milestone. The group performed in the movie Soul Food and had a hit single with the track "I Care About You". For a brief period, Milestone nearly became a real group, instead of just the fictional group portrayed in the movie, but label conflicts caused the project to collapse.
In 1999, Edmonds released his first solo album, 24/7. The title track from the album was a big hit, going gold and reaching No. 10 on the Hot 100. The album's second single, "No Love (I'm Not Used to)", performed moderately well, reaching No. 25 on the R&B charts.
Edmonds' second solo CD, Who Knew, was released on October 13, 2009, through Make Entertainment/Image Distribution. The first single was released in early August and is titled "Oh."
