The R&B singer battled back from years of drug addiction and homelessness to become a two-time Grammy nominated artist.
Kem, who begin playing the keyboard at five years old and writing songs in middle school, credits his faith in God for his success.
“Music has always been a part of my life throughout my addiction,” the singer said. “My faith is my foundation and I look at my music as a ministry.”
“People hear about my struggle and what they are witnessing is a miracle,” he said. “I don’t take it lightly and I speak about it on stage where ever I go.”
Kem will be performing along with Chrisette Michele at the Valentine’s Love Affair concert Saturday at the Arie Crown Theater.
