R&B singer Kem shares more of himself in his new memoir, “Share My Life: A Journey of Love, Faith, and Redemption.”

In the book, he opens up about his troubled past, including family issues, painful secrets, his battle with addiction, and more. During a recent interview, he revealed why he decided to open up now about everything.

“Great healing and transformation have taken place in my life because people have shared their stories with me. My hope is that I can do the same for someone else,” he said. The “Love Calls” singer talks about being homeless and seeking help in 1990, also attending Alcoholics Anonymous, finding his voice, and how music became his escape.

Kem added, “I came to a place where I quit trying to convince myself that I could solve my problem on my own, and I surrendered. I’m very grateful that I’ve had the experiences that I’ve had. Because I believe when we share our stories, we can make an impact on the world.”

The singer expects his book to be helpful, impactful, and inspiring to others and sends a special message to fans. “Don’t quit before the miracle happens. Pain is mandatory, but suffering is optional.
