Not sure what to say?

Kevin Mahogany had talent beyond talent. A gifted soul. May his family find peace in knowing that they will see him again!

My brother was a special person with a great talent. He had a humble, loving spirit and a fierce, passionate love for his music. I will miss his jokes, his no-nonsense personality and our conversations over great Kansas City barbeque. Thank God, I will see him again.

The first time I heard Kevin's voice was on a jazz vocal compilation disk and I was hooked! A few year's later, while vacationing in florida I saw him perform at the St. Pete Jazz Festival. The venue was packed and his voice was over the top. He played with a amateur big band that was super! He worked the stage and made sure the musicians got credit and got to do solos.

I host a small weekly radio show and play him all the time. It took some effort, but I even tracked down...

I worked with Kevin and his mother at the IRS in the early 80s and was good friend and always encouraged me. He was always singing and saying one day he would be famous. You kept that that promise and made it. I last spoke with him when he returned back to KC and he invited me to come out to one of his shows. Kevin you will be Missed My Friend

We have lost a good friend, musical wonder and a grand man. Kevin's talent and kindness ran deep. I am so sorry for this loss for so many.

Kevin. just one more ballad? Thanks

loved his voice. "Teach me tonight" is my favorite tune he sang.

Kevin, your were my best friend for 36 years. I will miss you deeply. You will be forever in my heart.

What a terrible loss for those who loved Kevin - a wonderful, generous musician, an uncommonly kind man, and a true faithful friend. Rest in Peace, Kevin!

I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. He will be remembered for his musical talent. I hope you find comfort and help in God during this time of sorrow.
