“Before album one, or even before then, it was about singing. I was a singer, a vocalist, and that was just it,” she told HelloBeautiful. But there’s “a huge difference between a singer and an artist, now I’m an artist.”

7. Kem

Kem made all the ladies blush during his Interludes set in Atlanta in August 2014! The vocal veteran performed an array of his classics and new music off his disc “Promise to Love: Album IV.”

He has the kind of confidence that commands a room and an aura that fans call “sexy.” Kem is signed to the legendary record label Motown– the same label that housed The Temptations, The Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye and The Supremes.

Kem is one of those singers that knows how to tug at the heart strings, but his friends once ribbed him about creating sultry songs that have put him on the map today.

“My first writings were love songs, I was a romantic at heart as a kid,” Kem confesses. “The musicians I was working with at the time we were coming up together would always ask me ‘Man you’re writing these love songs, don’t nobody want to hear that’ and they were trying to get me to do whatever the sound, whatever the flavor of the day was.”

It took the singer peddling some 17,000 of CDs he produced independently to get a record deal, but thankfully the world realized we need his songs about love. Kem moved men and woman alike with his smooth sounds!
