All 4 One

All 4 One is a male R&B quartet comprised of Tony Borowiak, Jamie Jones, Delious Kennedy, and Alfred Nevarez, all of whom are from The Antelope Valley in California. Tony, Jamie and Alfred started the group after meeting in a studio where they had sung commercial jingles. In forming a group, they persuaded local singer Delious Kennedy to join them and became All-4-One.

As a newly created group, the guys of All-4-One auditioned with Blitzz Records, performing a rendition of The Tymes' track 'So Much In Love.' The guys were impressive enough and the song solid enough that they were signed and the track was featured on their debut album, All-4-One.

The group appeared on the scene in 1994 with their self-titled debut album. The album was propelled by the number 1 single 'I Swear' which won the 1995 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a group. It was number 1 for eleven weeks on the Top 100 and was nominated for song of the year. The album scored further success with the single 'So Much In Love' which reached #5 on the Hot 100. The album's other singles, 'Breathless' and 'Skillz' did not do as well, with the former peaking out at #66 on the R&B charts, and the latter reaching #57 on the Hot 100. In the end, the album went four times platinum.

The follow-up album, And the Music Speaks, had respectable sales, driven by its popular single 'I Can Love You Like That.' The song hit number 5 on the Top 100 helping the album to its platinum status. An interesting occurrence with All 4 One's top singles is that they are often mistaken for Boyz II Men tracks.

One point that comes up a lot with All 4 One's early work is the fact that both of their biggest singles, 'I Swear' and 'I Can Love You Like That' were also done by country singer John Michael Montgomery. However, it's worth noting that while the group's rendition of 'I Swear' was a cover of John Michael Montgomery's track, the latter was actually first done by All 4 One. John Michael Montgomery's album was rushed out first though, creating the illusion that the group covered his song once again.

Following their two successful albums, All 4 One found trouble with their plan to release their third album, On and On. The album was supposed to be released in 1997, but following a label dispute, the album was quietly released in 1999 on Atlantic. The album included the single 'I Will Be Right Here' which reached #24 on the Adult Contemporary Charts.

The group's trouble grew at this point, when one of the members suffered an auto accident. Because of the accident, the group went on hiatus for a year. When they attempted to return in 2001 with a new album, All-4-One Has Left The Building, the disc never ended up seeing release. In 2002, they were able to return with a new album, A41, which had the single 'Beautiful As U' which reached #13 on the Adult Contemporary charts.

Throughout this period, All 4 One found a great deal of success in Asia and began touring and performing almost exclusively overseas. The product of this relationship can be seen by the group's Asia-only release, Split Personality.

In 2009, All 4 One returned to the United States with the album, No Regrets. The album was done in-house, written by the members of the group and produced by Jamie Jones company The Heavyweights. The album has had one single, 'My Child.'
