Absolutely HEART Detroit’s Grammy award winning music artist Kem, such an incredibly talented and down to earth person that’s giving back in major ways!!
.
Kem shared with us that “the main goal is to put money in the pocket of organizations who are doing work in our community.   It’s a great look for the city and it show’s how it’s a testament to the good heart of the city.”
.
Kem was once homeless and suffered from addiction. His spirituality and music helped him through some of his darkest moments. Kem shared with us that this is bigger than him…”As we serve those less fortunate than ourselves, it is important to uplift them and allow them to maintain their dignity.” “For this reason, we are treating them as our guess of honor and they will be given Honoree passes for the event.”
.
FREE Health Screenings was offered to the general public throughout the day. A number of local organizations volunteered to provide free services including Blood Pressure and Glucose Screening, HIV/AIDS testing, STD testing and Syphilis screening as well as a wealth of health related resources.
.
Kem encouraged everyone to give back by giving back a chance to win a car, gift card or KEM Merchandise.

Kem self-produced his first two CDs, “KEMISTRY” AND ” KEM ALBUM II” but decided to collaborate with outside producers for his third album “INTIMACY”.

I’ve learned that the quality of my life is contingent upon the quality of my relationships.  Intimacy is the cornerstone of relationships.  Intimacy is relationship with self, family, friends and our Creator.  It’s the ability to allow one’s self to be vulnerable…”

Here’s one of our favorite songs off Kem‘s “INTIMACY” album…
