Real love is forever. Mr. Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds is brilliant, magical, and one of a kind. He has undeniably penned a legacy that shall be remembered for generations to come. Not only are his songs unforgettable classics but they are monumental in the world of music. On December 4, 2015 Babyface will release his 10th studio album " Return of The Tender Lover " . His second solo album "Tender Lover" released in 1989 . That album featured chart topping hits such as "Soon As I Get Home". "Whip Appeal" and 'My Kind Of Girl" . When asked about his new album "Return Of The Tender Lover " being unapologetic R&B in his interview with Sophie Harris of Rolling Stone he had this to say ["Yes. It's like not having to say, "I'm sorry that I'm singing a love song; I'm sorry that it's not negative; I'm sorry that it's not trendy, that it doesn't have the things that make up what is supposed to be a hit today; I'm sorry that it has chord changes." [Laughs] This is straight R&B; it's meant to make you feel good. It's meant to be musical, and I'm not going to apologize for that. This is what it is, so take it or leave it"].
I've said numerous times that Babyface is my all time favorite artist . I'm looking forward to this album and more videos. He released his video for his single "We've Got Love" today on Centric. You can watch it and buy the single below. I love the song an video. The song makes me feel happy and the video does too . Babyface kicks off his tour on December 11, 2015 in Atlantic City.

Yes, I think Babyface well Mr.Babyface is one of the most iconic singers and songwriters of all time. I fell in love with his music at a very young age . "Every Time I Close My Eyes" off of his fourth album "The Day" is my favorite song on the planet. Babyface is truly a legend and I am so inspired by his ability to create songs that are not only beautiful but magical classics that will last for generations to come. The 11 time Grammy Award winner has written and produced for some of your favorite artist such as Boys II Men, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Lil Wayne, Celine Dion, Brandy, Kenny G, Madonna, Ashanti and so many more. Babyface has 9 solo albums under his belt and over 26 #1 records. I saw Babyface live in concert for the first time in Philadelphia, June 9, 2013 at the Keswick Theatre. I couldn't believe it. I sat there in awe as Babyface performed all of my favorites . I sang and danced. My mom thought I was going to faint (lol) . Then he performed "When Can I See You Again" with no band just him, the mic, and his guitar and I was speechless. As I sat front row just watching and listening, it felt like a dream come true. I saw Babyface for the second time at the Dell in Philadelphia on July 17, 2014 in concert with Anthony Hamilton and Robert Glasper. You have to go to a Babyface show. You'll have the time of your life! His song

THE MOGUL MINUTE : WHAT A BEAUTACIOUS EVENING AT THE DELL WITH MR.ANTHONY HAMILTON & MR.KENNY "BABYFACE" EDMONDS & ROBERT GLASPER
Love, electrifying music, soul, and good vibes filled The Dell in Philadelphia on July 17.The arena was full of smiles, dancing, and happiness as the sounds of Mr.Anthony Hamilton, Babyface, and Robert Glasper filled the air .
The neo-soul, hip hop artist Robert Glasper was the opening act for the show. He rocked out on his keytar as he performed some of his songs off "Robert Glasper Experiment Black Radio" album . After his jazzed up set , the lovely host of 105.3 WDAS Ms.Patty Jackson stepped on stage to make a few announcements. The audience tuned in as she informed that this would be the first time that Babyface ever performed at The Dell and he'd be on stage in a few minutes. The sold out arena cheered wildly at the special "first-ever" news. Ms.Patty Jackson also took the time to show some love to the beautiful Ms.Mimi Brown whom is celebrating 35 years in radio at 105.3 WDAS (Congratulations) !!! After her segment Dj.Gary O was playing all the old school jams on the 1's and 2's , the audience was definitely having a party. All of a sudden the band was done setting up , the Dj's music faded, the lights got dim, it was time. The announcer introduced "Kenny Babyface Edmonds" to The Dell . The crowd went into an absolute frenzy. BabyFace stood there behind the mic in all of his amazing glory for a few seconds . Let's just say I as well as many others were in absolute heaven. Then he broke out into the 1993 hit "For The Cool In You". The audience instantly started jamming right along as Babyface sang and dance. The iconic Babyface put on an absolutely incredible show. He sang "Everytime I Close My Eyes" (my favorite) , "Slow Jam" and a medley of other songs he wrote for other artist such as "Can We Talk" , "Every Little Step" "End Of The Road" and more. During his performance of "End of The Road" Babyface stepped off the stage and came into the audience and the crowd got so excited. He went from one side of The Dell to the other. I think the fans were quite surprised that Babyface was so close to them. After a quick suit change Babyface performed "Whip Appeal" and the ladies loved every second of it. Babyface is truly a phenomenal man and his first-ever performance at The Dell was spectacular. DJ Gary O was back on The 1's ad 2's . Ms.Patty Jackson came to the stage again to introduce Mr.Anthony Hamilton. Mr.Anthony Hamilton's band stepped out on stage and turned up. Mr.Anthony Hamilton performed "Charlene" "Comin From Where I'm From" , "I'll Wait", "Point Of It All", "Can't Let Go", "Amazing" and few other favorites. Anthony Hamilton his band, and his background singers definitely took the audience to North Carolina as he called it "The Dirty Dirty". Mr.Anthony Hamilton definitely brought the soul, the church, and the south to the stage. When he performed "Comin From Where I'm From" , it brought me back to my middle school days, I was 12 years old when that song came out and I use to love when the video came on TV. At 22, it was such an amazing moment to see him perform it live. His background singers and his band definitely kicked it out on stage as well. Those country boys can sang. Goodness!! It was a great night and truly a beautacious evening at The Dell watching such a fantastic men perform.
