The American R&B group All-4-One was established by founding members Tony Borowiak, Alfred Nevarez, Delious Kennedy, and Jamie Jones, who came together in California in the early 1990’s and quickly garnered the interest of major record labels. Their mega-hit “I Swear,” released from their debut album All-4-One, earned the group a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or group with Vocals and remained at the number one spot on the mainstream charts for a staggering eleven weeks, giving All-4-One one of the most successful starts for a debut R&B group in music history.
All-4-One also featured the singles “So Much In Love,” “Breathless,” “I Can Love You Like That,” and “Someday,” all of which rose to the top of the R&B charts. After the group’s debut, they released On and On (1999), A41 (2002), Split Personality (2004), and No Regrets (2009), giving audiences the additional singles “I Will Be Right Here,” “Not Ready for Goodbye,” “Beautiful as U,” “My Child,” and “When I Needed an Angel.”
In addition to All-4-One’s Grammy win for “I Swear,” the group has also been recognized with additional Grammy nominations, also for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, for “I Can Love You Like That” and “I’m Your Man.” Other awards include: an American Music Award for Favorite New Artists Soul/Rhythm and Blues (for So Much in Love); two American Music Award nominations for Favorite Soul/R&B Single and Favorite Pop/Rock New Artist; and A Billboard Award nomination for “I Swear.”
Although All-4-One still performs and records as a group, the individual members have also gone on to pursue individual endeavors in recent years. Delious Kennedy in particular has launched a career as a solo artist, releasing “My Rose” in 2012 and co-founding the highly prestigious Catalina Film Festival.
