Kevin Paige

Kevin Paige (born on October 10, 1966 in Memphis, Tennessee) is a pop singer from the late '80s\early '90s. His dad was a radio singer for NBC back in the '40s.

After he earned consecutive All-State drummer honors in high school, Kevin gigged with a few local bands such as the Press, Xavion, & Finger Print before starting a solo career and signing to Chrysalis Records in 1989.
During that same year, Kevin released his self-titled debut album which peaked at #107 on the Billboard 200 chart.
His first single "Don't Shut Me Out" peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the fall of 1989, making it his first hit song.
Kevin's second single "Anything I Want" peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of the singles led to him performing as the opening act for Debbie Gibson's world tour.
In 1990, Kevin released the last single from the album "A Touch of Paradise," but the song failed to chart and unfortunately he never released a follow-up album. After that, he went on to become a songwriter for Zomba Music Group.

These days, Kevin is a music minister at Lindenwood Christian Church in Memphis. He and his wife, Bethany Paige have released a few Contemporary Christian music albums together.
