    Keke Wyatt first came to national attention as a teenager when “My First Love,” her duet with Avant hit the Top 10 in 2000. As a result, she was signed to Geffen Records and at age 18 scored a platinum-selling debut album featuring “Nothing In This World,” another hit duet with Avant. The duo was also featured on the soundtrack of the film Barbershop 2. In 2010, she released a new album, Who Knew? on Shanachie Entertainment, which featured the Top 30 Urban AC title track single. Keke’s second album on Shanachie, Unbelievable, spawned a single duet with American Idol winner Ruben Studdard. Keke then attained a featured role on the TV One reality show R&B Divas: Atlanta, which ran for four seasons. Subsequently, she and her then-husband appeared along with other celebrity couples in the WE TV series Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. Launching her own label, Keke released an E.P. and two albums, one of original material and one of known songs entitled Keke Covers. Her soulful version of country star Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” from the latter album garnered over 10 million views on YouTube. Keke appeared in the 2021 BET+ original movie Favorite Son and more recently she had a role as a minister’s wife in the TV show Saints & Sinners. Amid a busy career and schedule, Keke still manages to be a devoted and loving mother to eleven children. With the launch of a new year, Keke now has the time and space to devote to the long-anticipated new album her fans have been waiting for.
     
    Keke promises, “Fans can expect some good ole Sanging honey!! I want to give my fans the gift of love, hope and trust with my new music. However, don't get it twisted because I'm singing about it all. I think everyone will be able to relate to this album.”
