City Slang: Kem set to release Christmas album (and more) 

Detroit’s remaining Motown artist Kem will release What Christmas Means on October 16.

“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).

In other news, anybody tuning into the Rickey Smiley Show on TV One, Tuesday nights at 9 p.m., will have seen Detroit Diva Roz Ryan playing Rickey’s Aunt Sylvia who helps him raise the kids.
