City Slang: Kem set to release Christmas album (and more)
Detroitâ€™s remaining Motown artist Kem will release What Christmas Means on October 16.
â€śWriting and recording a Christmas album is something that Iâ€™ve wanted to do for some time,â€ť said KEM. â€śHalf of the album consists of covers of my favorite holiday songs, and half are original compositions. Iâ€™d classify it as a classic Christmas album with a romantic spin, thatâ€™s thoughtful, warm and sensuous. My hope is that people will be playing it for years to come.â€ť
The final sequence for WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS is as follows: 1. Glorify The King 2. What Christmas Means 3. A Christmas Song For You 4. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas 5. Christmas Time Is Here 6. The Christmas Song 7. Be Mine For Christmas featuring Ledisi 8. Merry Christmas Baby 9. We Three Kings 10. Doo Wop Christmas (Thatâ€™s What Christmas Is All About).
