(Battle Creek, Mich.) Grammy-nominated R&B recording artist KEM will appear at the Kellogg Arena on Sat., April 13, 2024, in a concert hosted by The Kalamazoo (MI) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated. 


As an internationally renowned R&B singer and songwriter, KEM spent much of his life in Detroit and has performed all over the world. He has one Platinum-selling album (KEM: ALBUM II); two Gold-selling albums (KEMISTRY; INTIMACY); three GRAMMY nominations, along with several number-one singles, sold-out national tours and international shows.


“We are excited to turn up the energy in Battle Creek and bring KEM to the Kellogg Arena for all the concertgoers in our region who love good music and nightlife,” said La June Montgomery Tabron, chair of the fundraising committee for The Kalamazoo (MI) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated. “The Kellogg Arena is the third largest indoor, municipally owned concert venue in the state, and it’s time to show the region why it’s a great location to attend a concert.”


The concert will begin at 8 p.m., and doors will open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the Kellogg Arena. All VIP ticket purchasers will receive a copy of his newly released memoir, “Share My Life” published by Simon & Schuster.


“Our Links Chapter is thrilled to bring the talent and creativity of KEM to audiences in the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo region. We’re eager for the community to be more aware of our charitable efforts and to have an opportunity to come out and support the mission of our chapter. And KEM’s soulful music is perfect for this time of the year,” added Tabron.


All proceeds from the KEM concert will support scholarships, programs and services for the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo communities.
