Ralph really began his career in 1983, as the vocalist of the band ‘New Edition’, however, although moderately successful, in 1989 he left the band and began a solo career, subsequently releasing three studio albums, ten singles and one music video which increased Tresvant’s net worth considerably. His music video ‘Voices That Care’ (1991) was directed by David S. Jackson, but his most successful release was his self-titled debut album in 1990, which topped the R&B chart in the US, while achieving platinum certification.
