After more than thirty years in the industry and 10 GRAMMY Awards, Kenneth Brian “Babyface” Edmonds was given a star on Hollywood’s walk of fame. The artist had a stellar ceremony on Thursday (October 10) in which the best and brightest of Hollywood came out to shed love on the musician whose been making tunes since 1972.
“I hope you’ll understand it when I say this, but it feels like it’s mine as well,” said L.A. Reid who is considered by Babyface to be a very close friend. “Kenny and I moved to L.A. probably around 1983 or ’84, not far from here, and we weren’t doing that well, if you know what I mean, and so I’m proud because he’s come so far.”
Babyface had family by his side at the ceremony, taking pictures with his wife and children while on the Walk.
Kenneth began his trails in the music industry as a guitarist for the group, Manchild. He has since written several hit songs and recorded a duet with Toni Braxton that is scheduled for release in December. Edmonds has two sons, Brandon and Dylan, with former wife Tracey and a daughter, Peyton, with Nicole “Nikki” Pantenburg.
