KEM performs at the 2014 Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation Gala presented by Coca-Cola at the Hilton Chicago on May 3, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.

Avant, Marsha Ambrosius & Jazmine Sullivan will step in following Braxton's health issues.

Motown artist Kem will now be joined by special guests Avant, Marsha Ambrosius and Jazmine Sullivan in select cities for his U.S. headlining Promise to Love tour. Tamar Braxton, his originally scheduled opening act, was forced to exit the tour and ABC’s Dancing With the Stars earlier this week when blood clots were discovered in her lungs.
