Melvin Edmonds, older brother of legendary hitmaker Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and a founding member of the R&B group After 7, which rose to fame in the ’90s, has died. He was 65.

Melvin Edmonds’ death Saturday was announced by the group Monday on Facebook, and confirmed to the Indianapolis Star by his son Melvin.

Edmonds suffered a stroke in 2011, according to CNN, and had been in poor health, but seemed to rebound in recent years, rejoining the group in 2016 for its comeback album, Timeless. Read more from The Root.
