Along with crafting hits for himself, Babyface has produced smashes for the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Brandy, Celine Dion, Paula Abdul, Pink and Ariana Grande to name a few. The 56-year-old entertainer was arguably one of the most successful producers during the 90s.
During the 2015 Soul Train Awards, Babyface received the Legend Award which was presented by longtime friend and collaborator L.A. Reid. On stage to sing some of his songs were Boyz II Men, Fantasia, Brandy, Bobby Brown and Tevin Campbell. Babyface even got in on the action as well, singing one of his hits.
No disrespect to the others, but IMHO Fantasia stole the show with her segment. The American Idol Season 3 winner took everyone to church with her rendition of “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” by Whitney Houston and “Superwoman” by Karyn White. Girl absolutely slayed. They don’t make Idol winners like her anymore. Check out the musical tribute below.
