SoulTracks Lost Gem: After 7 - Sara Smile
At Indiana University, brothers Kevin and Melvin Edmonds teamed with college mate Keith Mitchell to form After 7 and played local gigs in the Bloomington area. They went on to become a consistent, if understated, charting act, scoring moderate hits with "Nights Like This" (from The Five Heartbeats soundtrack) and a nice cover of "Baby I'm For Real" before landing a major crossover hit in 1995 with the wonderful midtempo number "Til You Do Me Right." And while After 7 boasted solid harmonies and generally strong material, the highlight of the group's recorded performances was Edmond's bright, upbeat vocals. Click Here for the full biography
And while the group had several hits, one of their lesser known but very enjoyable singles was a remake of Hall & Oates' classic ballad, "Sara Smile." Take a listen below and tell us what you think of our newest SoulTracks Lost Gem.
