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.

Kem III: Intimacy, is a musical testimony of love, life, and the promises that lay within the atmosphere of coming together in love's proximity. Still embodying the same sound that gave us  "Love Calls" and "I Can't Stop Loving You," Kem's latest album doesn't depart from the unique appeal we're used to, but it shows a considerable level of growth in his  journey as an artist and a producer.

All that Laz

All that LazLaz Alonso was born in Washington, DC, to first-generation immigrants who were refugees from Cuba. Although he developed a passion for acting at an early age, Laz initially pursued a seemingly more practical career in finance after his graduation from Howard University where he had majored in business.

Book review:“The Long Fall” by Walter Mosley

Book review:“The Long Fall” by Walter MosleyThe buzzword for today is “networking”.

They, in turn, give you names of a good accountant, a decent tutor, a trustworthy babysitter. You make connections. You put people in touch with others.
