The artist born Kim Owens in Nashville, now known as Kem, has come a long way in his music career. Having survived homelessness and addiction to become one of R&B’s most beloved singers, Kem has had four gold albums since his debut in 2003.
Today’s song has a dual purpose. Not only is it today’s Morning Groove, but it also fulfills a challenge, started at Erika Kind’s blog-to post something romantic on Tuesday, using the hashtag #RomanticTuesday.
This song is the title track from Kem’s fourth album, Promise To Love. In the song, he promises to love and marry a woman who waited for him while he kept running away from her and being selfish. But after realizing the errors of his ways, he now knows that his life has been changed and he wants to be in love with the woman after all.
I think it’s a beautiful song, and it fits the bill for #RomanticTuesday. It is also the Morning Groove for today. Enjoy it and as always, thanks for reading and listening.
