Article Title: Schermerhorn Symphony Center Presents A Valentine’s with R&B Singer KEM
Article: Nashville native and Platinum-selling singer/songwriter KEM returns for a very special one-night-only Valentine’s engagement at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Treat your love to an evening of soulful and inspiring music from this sensational performer on Monday, February 19.
  Born in Nashville, TN, KEM is an American R&B/Soul singer–songwriter, and producer who has faced many obstacles in life. After finishing high school, KEM dealt with homelessness, addiction, and isolation from his family. He did not overcome these issues until he turned to spirituality and music, as he has said, "My career didn't take off until I connected with my spirituality. That's why I take time on stage and on the album to administer spirituality to people. That's one of the things that I am most proud of." Kem is also very well received by older listeners of R&B/Soul for his classy sound and not incorporating elements of Hip-hop music.
  His career began we he decided to write, produce, and finance his self-released debut album, Kemistry, with his American Express card and singing top 40 cover tunes in a wedding band and waiting tables. He was later signed by Motown Records in November 2001, who re-released the album on February 25, 2003, and sold more than 500,000 copies nationwide. The album's only official single was "Love Calls". He followed his debut release with a second album, Album II, released May 17, 2005 and sold more than 500,000 copies nationwide. It included the hit single "I Can't Stop Loving You," a # 1 at urban adult contemporary radio, and the song "You Might Win" featuring Stevie Wonder on harmonica.
  Today, he still reigns as one of the top R&B crooners with many hits to his name.
