An Evening with Kem: The Live Kemistry Show
After being kicked out of his home at the end of high school, Kem struggled with a challenging life. He was at his lowest before he realized that a change was needed. A full year of recovery brought him back to the only peace he had found in life. Music was the solution, and with little time between his side job, Kem managed to self-record Kemistry. It's not every day that a label will re-record the LP that an artist had prior to signing, yet Motown saw history in the making with Kem. Platinum albums, top 10 singles and live tours soon followed. The artist credits his success to the spiritual growth he achieved by getting off of the streets. Stevie Wonder recognized the artist's talents and partnered with Kem to write "You Might Win." His appearances with Ronald Isley and Steve Harvey brought greater publicity to the artist and a sure claim to music history. He's now touring the United States with small venues of intimate crowds.
