Music Alla Kaap 2019 headliners

The Grammy Award winning group All-4-One is internationally known for making beautiful love songs that not only chart radio airwaves, but also garner countless awards. All-4-One’s very first single So Much in Love, scaled to RIAA Gold Sales and Top 5 pop status. The California based quartet soon marked their place in the industry as premier balladeers.

Their second single, I Swear, claimed the Billboard “Hot 100” #1 spot for 11 consecutive weeks. I Swear holds a spot on the Billboard’s “Hot 100” as one of the most successful singles of all time and has been named by ASCAP as one of the greatest love songs of the 20th century. I Swear even has an imprint in the Guinness’s World Book of records (biggest selling single of 1994).

All-4-One’s second album was highlighted by I Can Love You Like That, which hit the Top 5 on the Billboard “Hot 100”. To date the band has sold over 20 million units worldwide, won a bevy of awards including a Grammy, an American Music Award, and a Blockbuster Award.

All-4-One is featured on the following: Tapestry Revisited: A Tribute to Carole King, with their rendition of Tapestry, which sold over a million units: the multi-platinum soundtrack to Walt Disney Pictures animated feature film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame with the main theme song Someday; and the Space Jam soundtrack, a five-time platinum album, amongst their best-selling works.

Celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, All-4-One continues to tour the world as the original members, (Tony BorowiakDelious KennedyAlfred Nevarez and Jamie Jones), with a collection of hits under their belt.
