Published May 20, 2019

According to USA Today, Melvin Edmonds, a founding member of Indianapolis R&B group After 7 and older brother of Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, died Saturday following a short illness. He was 65.

His death was confirmed by his son, also named Melvin.

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.
