Who Is Kem

Kem was born Kim Owens (he would later change the spelling of his first name after he became a performer) and was raised in the Detroit area. He has publicly refused to reveal his age, but from comments made in previous interviews, it’s been speculated that he was born in the 1960s or early 1970s. His love for music began at an early age: he began to learn playing the piano when he was 5, and a babysitter also taught him how to play some music. By the time he reached high school, Kem was singing in the choir and was a fan of Jazz, R&B; and pop acts like Michael Jackson, Steely Dan, Al Jarreau and Grover Washington Jr.

American R&B/Soul singer–songwriter and producer Kem has a net worth of $1.5 million dollars, as of 2020.

Full name: Kem Owens. Born July 23, in Nashville, Tenn. Raised in Detroit, Michigan.

Addiction, Homelessness

After finishing high school, Kem left home when he was 19 and wound up struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. He was homeless for a period of time and bounced around from place to place. He ended up at a downtown Detroit shelter but things got worse and he was eventually sleeping outside on the streets. After falling as low as he could, he reached out and turned to God. After picking himself up and off the streets, he became a member of the Renaissance Unity Church in the Detroit suburbs in the early 1990s and began to play music with his friends again while also working day jobs.
