In a statement about the project, Kem says:
"Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of my signing to the Motown label is exceptionally significant for me. As a young man creating music, only in my wildest dreams could I envision a life that could encapsulate the magnitude of a moment like this. My heart is filled with gratitude to my Motown family for having faith in my debut album, KEMISTRY, and continuing to support my musical journey of love. Having the last two decades of my career culminate in a live album recorded in Detroit, in the city and with the people who first heard "Love Calls" and helped put me on the map, is epic."
To coincide with the live album, Kem has also released his first memoir Share My Life: A Journey of Love, Faith, and Redemption where trace his transformative journey from homelessness to gold-selling artist.
Kem is currently on The Soul II Soul Tour with Ledisi & special guest Musiq Soulchild. See dates, cities and venues HERE.
