*Two-time Grammy Award®-nominated Motown Records artist KEM has completed his first holiday album, WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS, set for an October 16 release, announced today by Ethiopia Habtemariam, SVP of Motown Records.
The album is highlighted by a duet with Verve recording artist, Ledisi, on “Be Mine For Christmas,” co-written by KEM and new collaborator Melanie Rutherford. The album also includes orchestra arrangements by Motown legend, Paul Reiser.
WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS is the fourth Motown release by lifelong Detroiter, KEM, who produced his album at state-of-the-art Studio A Recording in nearby Dearborn Heights. The 10-song album weaves new original Christmas compositions co-written by KEM and Melanie Rutherford, with traditional holiday classics.
“Writing and recording a Christmas album is something that I’ve wanted to do for some time,” said KEM. “Half of the album consists of covers of my favorite holiday songs, and half are original compositions. I’d classify it as a classic Christmas album with a romantic spin, that’s thoughtful, warm and sensuous. My hope is that people will be playing it for years to come.”
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 (That’s What Christmas Is All About).
