Soul II Soul Featuring Kem, Ledisi With Special Guest Musiq Soulchild To Perform At The Fox Theatre Saturday, March 11
(DETROIT – November 7, 2022) – R&B legends KEM and Ledisi announce “The Soul II Soul Tour” is coming to the Fox Theatre on Saturday, March 11 at 8 p.m. The Grammy® Award-recognized artists will take the stage with special guest Musiq Soulchild. Comerica Bank is the exclusive presenting partner of the Fox Theatre.
Three-time Grammy®-nominated and multi-Platinum singer and songwriter KEM ascended from the deep grasp of addiction and homelessness on the streets of Detroit to find himself among the legendary icons etched atop Motown’s marquee of music history. KEM’s redemptive, hook-laden music – a deft fusion of rhythm & blues, soul, and jazz – sparkles beneath his distinctively transfixing vocals. Treasured as one of the redefining voices of contemporary music, he has been compared to renowned artists such as Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, and Marvin Gaye.
Blessed as a natural born storyteller KEM perfected his vocal gifts across an emotional palette of pain by stepping fully into his power and giving rise to the purest expressions of his truth.
Perfecting songs that would revitalize his spirit as he bounced between homeless shelters and drug rehab centers proved to be the golden thread that would guide him through the darkest valleys of despair to sobriety on his birthday in 1995 — a milestone moment where KEM’s inner strength and dramatic depth propelled him toward his destined future as one of music’s most important and cherished voices.
2021 Grammy winner, Ledisi is a 12-time Grammy® nominated powerhouse vocalist with a career spanning almost two decades. Since arriving on the scene in the late 1990’s, she's garnered three Soul Train Music awards, an NAACP Theater Award, and six NAACP Image Award nominations. Most recently, Ledisi received two LA Alliance Ovation Award nominations one for Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
Born in New Orleans and raised in Oakland, CA, Ledisi has wowed fans with her unparalleled vocals ever since she burst onto the scene. She has truly earned a place in the pantheon of the greatest singers of her generation. Ledisi is a favorite of The Obamas and a long list of icons including the late-Prince, Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan and so many more. She has headlined two nationally sold-out tours, performed alongside Dave Matthews, Kelly Clarkson, Vince Gill and Maxwell as well as jazz greats Herbie Hancock and Patti Austin.
