KEM

Internationally renowned R&B singer-songwriter Kem has always been driven by music and the emotions involved in bringing it to life. Much of his inspiration comes from his personal life experiences, like his journey from homelessness and addiction to sobriety and prosperity. 


In 2002, the Detroit-native independently released his first CD, KEMISTRY, and sold 15,000 units literally out of the trunk of his car. The success landed him a meeting with Motown Records and a five-record deal. He rereleased KEMISTRY on the Motown label in 2003 and his first hit “Love Calls” soared to #1 on Urban Adult Contemporary charts and continues to be played to this day as an undisputed classic. More albums and chart-topping hits followed. 


Combined, KEM’s five albums have sold in excess of 2.9 million units. In recognition of his singing and songwriting talents, KEM has received three Grammy® nominations; two NAACP Image Awards; two NAACP Image Awards; two Soul Train Awards and a BET Centric Award.


In addition to his career as an artist, KEM is firmly committed to humanitarian work, founding Mack & Third, Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is built on the premise that no basic human need should go unmet.
