Easter Sunday with Kem

Easter Sunday with KemR&B artist Kem will bring a little intimacy back to Minneapolis when he performs at Epic on Easter Sunday, April 12 . Kem's performance will include tracks off Kem III: Intimacy, his highly anticipated follow-up to his Gold albums Kemistry and Kem: Album II.
