Biography

Kevin, or KT as he was known to millions of fans, was one of 4 singers who made up the award winning mega-groups of the 1990’s, “Color Me Badd”.

The group sold millions of albums, reached number one on the charts, and in addition to being Grammy nominated, the group won American Music and Soul Train Awards. Attendance records were set all over the United States and the world and television appearances included “The Tonight Show- with Jay Leno”, “Saturday Night Live” and “Beverly Hills 90210”

But this introduction of Kevin is not about the re-launching of a musical career. It is about the incredible calling of God, and the anointing that Christ and the Holy Spirit have placed on Kevin’s life. For, on June 1, 1997, Kevin Thornton committed his life fully to Christ.

However, on October 31, 1998, Kevin was faced with a choice. A contract, potentially worth millions of dollars, was placed in front of Kevin Thornton and Color Me Badd. This contract would have linked the group with none other than Johnny Wright. Johnny Wright was the creator/manager of the groups “Backstreet Boys” and “*NSYNC”.

But the Holy Spirit had been working in Kevin’s life. Despite the chance to gain even more fame, acclaim and finances, and after profound praying and searching, Kevin listened to the Lord’s command “To Follow Me” and left the secular music industry and all the worldly ways that it involved.

Kevin chose the narrow path over the wider road- God over the World!
