The Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and producer shared the news Friday on Instagram as he celebrated his 62nd birthday.
“I would like to warmly thank everyone for all the many birthday wishes today. I feel so blessed to be able to celebrate another birthday,” he began. “I tested positive for the Covid-19 virus, as did my family,” he wrote “It’s an incredibly scary thing to go through my friends.”
He urged fans to “stay home, stay safe.”
Babyface said he’s back to “full health” and will be participating in an Instagram Live concert on Saturday, April 18, with fellow chart-topping producers, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland and Teddy Riley.
He described it as a “Celebration of Black Music Excellence,” and said it will include a “Teddy vs. Babyface” performance.
“So get ready for a night of groove and love. Ladies…put on your red dress…light the candles, pour some wine, and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes,” he wrote.
