  • J. Ivy

    J. Ivy

    Hip-Hop/Rap

    “You see, art of the soul is like food for the body; we need it. If we don’t eat, we wither away and die. But if w constantly feed on the tensions of life without trimming the fat, we suffer from the side effects of our stressful obesity.” – J. Ivy (Dear Father: Breaking The Cycle of Pain)

  • Kem

    R&B

    For all of his life, KEM has been driven by music and the emotions involved in bringing it to life. That passion stems from the days he spent as a child playing the old piano at his grandfather’s church.
    For KEM, there’s always been a deep and very intimate connection to music, which has evolved throughout his personal life experiences.
    Today, the internationally renowned R&B singer/songwriter has to his credit: one Platinum-selling album (KEM: ALBUM II); two Gold-selling albums (KEMISTRY; INTIMACY); three GRAMMY nominations; five #1 hit singles (“Love Calls,” “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Why Would You Stay,” “It’s You” and “Nobody”), along with several sold-out national tours and international shows.
    In spite of his success in the world of R&B, many still don’t know the true depths of KEM, his music, his passion for songwriting or his journey from homelessness and addiction to sobriety that have given life to his music and thousands of fans. Consequently, he’s often called “R&B’s Best Kept Secret.”

  • Sir the Baptist

    Sir the Baptist

    Hip-Hop/Rap

    Sir the Baptist, hip hop’s holistic lyricist, is proving himself to be a chaplain of the modern rap culture. He’s an internationally known artist signed to Atlantic Records, BET award nominated and acknowledged by Forbes, Jay Z, Billboard, CNN, Stevie Wonder, Late Night with Seth Meyers, People Magazine, BBC Radio 1, NPR, The Grammys, Sway and many others for his trailblazing cause of “Healing Hip Hop.” As a second generation cultural minister, growing up in historically rich Bronzeville neighborhood in Chicago, the idea of cleansing the culture has be a path Sir has been set out on since birth. CNN states that Sir is achieving this through a “balance between religion and life”. By using the power of hip hop’s influence, The Baptist records compelling stories about real people as modern parables to strip away the shame and embarrassment that too often keep people from seeking help.
