Ketara Shavon Wyatt, better known as Keke Wyatt, burst on the scene with two breakthrough hit duets with Avant at the tender age of 18 and was on her way to stardom. In 2004, the songstress signed with Cash Money Records. Her first single for the label, “Put Your Hands On Me,” became the #1 most added urban track on the radio in April 2005. After being released from Cash Money, Keke signed with TVT Records in 2006 and recorded the GHETTO ROSE album. The title track was released as a single and began picking up airplay but TVT suddenly declared bankruptcy before the album could be released. Keke then licked her wounds and used the time off to write, act, and devote time to family. Keke re-launched in 2010, divorced from her husband of ten years, moving with her four children from her home state of Kentucky to Atlanta, releasing a comeback album, WHO KNEW? and ultimately finding true love with her current husband, Michael Ford. Making up for lost time; Keke Wyatt’s third album, UNBELIEVABLE, captures the full range of her talent, as she is joined by special guest vocalists, Ruben Studdard, Kelly Price and Tweet.
