Having gotten their start in the Latin club scenes of New York City, Tony
, Kayel, and Angel
-- better known as TKA
-- got their first big break ironically enough at a sweet 16 birthday party. With an A&R representative from Tommy Boy present to witness their love ballad harmonies over hip-hop beats, TKA
were immediately signed in 1987. Later on that year they released Scars of Love
, followed by Louder That Love in 1991 and a greatest hits album in 1992.
