Kem, Musiq Soulchild & Ledisi Fill The Fox With R&B and Soul Stylings

Kem.0310H

Kem headlined a night of R&B and Neo-Soul Thursday night at the nearly full Fox Theatre, with opening acts Musiq Soulchild and Ledisi providing support. Kem Owens wrote, produced, and financed his self-released debut album, Kemistry, with his American Express 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 first single, “Love Calls”, became a hit at urban adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio, and USA Today pegged it early on as a “Motown classic.” His debut went gold-plus. a second show was added Friday night.

AJC photographer Robb Cohen covered the show with his camera. See the 18-photo gallery . What did you think of the show? Who shined the brightest?

This concert was absolutely beautiful!! Ledisi played an acoustic set! You know you’re talented when you hit a packed house with just 1 backup singer and a guitarist and bring the house down. Musiq well what can I say…the consummate artist never disappoints. Kem was great too was not a fan before but after last night I think I might pick up the CD. For those going to tonight’s show be prepared to be amazed!!
