More Famous Musicians From Indianapolis

Indianapolis isn’t home to very many rising stars or known musicians, but it has its share. Below are some of the most famous people that have called the Indianapolis area home.


Kenneth Edmonds, also known as Babyface, hails from Indianapolis. Many people known him as a famous songwriter and producer, associated with musical films like Waiting to Exhale. He’s also, of course, performed his share of music. I remember receiving the album as a gift for Christmas that year and being less than pleased with it, dismissing the lyrics as a bit misogynist—let alone not something a woman would sing. Then I realized that Babyface wrote them.
