Keke Wyatt has had her share of up’s and down’s in life and in her musical career. But now she is nothing but up! On July 28, 2017, Wyatt released the lead single “Summertime" taken from her upcoming fifth studio album "Country Fried Soul”. Keke Wyatt Covers hit the Social Media scene last year and climbed up the charts . . . Yes, Keke is back in a major way.

The Beginning:
Wyatt was raised in a musical family, hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, and although her background is rooted in gospel music, Keke was exposed to Contemporary R&B and secular music, and she would come in to perform with her vocals into these genres that were as diverse as gospel, pop and opera. Wyatt began singing at the age of 2, experiencing her first live show by the age of 5. As she matured, her musical tastes were influenced by R&B greats such as Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Ella Fitzgerald to name a few.

First Hit single, Breakthrough and Debut album "Soul Sista”:
Wyatt’s musical talent could not be ignored and at age fifteen, Wyatt recorded "My First Love" with Avant which was released two years later, eventually becoming a single for his album entitled My Thoughts. Wyatt gained much notoriety for the remake of the 1980s ballad by Rene & Angela. Its success, remaining in the top 10 for several weeks, resulted in a solo album contract with MCA Records. Soul Sista, Wyatt’s solo debut in 2001, reached platinum album success, in November 13, 2001.

Emotional RollerCoaster:
Wyatt was 18 years old when she married Rahmat Morton, her road manager. An altercation between Wyatt and Morton was widely reported in 2001, with Wyatt explaining that she had stabbed her husband out of self-defense and to protect her children. Wyatt filed for divorce from Morton in 2009 after an escalation of domestic violence, relocating her family from Kentucky to Atlanta, Georgia. She remarried in 2010 to Michael Jamar an ordained minister who went to appear with Wyatt in the reality TV show R&B Divas. As of 2013 the couple were raising six children together, three fathered by Wyatt's first husband, and two fathered by Ford. The sixth child is her step-child from Ford's previous relationship. Wyatt and her husband had their eighth child in early 2015. Wyatt announced in April 2017 that she is currently pregnant with her ninth child. In early September 2017, it was reported that the couple were divorcing while she was 8 months pregnant with their ninth child.

R&B Diva:
In 2012, Wyatt was cast in TV One's R&B Divas which features the lives of five 1990s chart-topping R&B singers including Wyatt, Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Monifah and Syleena Johnson. The show documented the singers living in Atlanta, Georgia as they work towards rebuilding their careers.


Until Now:
New Music is on the horizon for the multitalented Singer who has remained a stable force in music since the age of fifteen! See Keke Wyatt on March 10th Up Close and Personal and holding nothing back . . . Here she comes!
