Edem Kegey is a musician, poet, visual and movement artist. 

As Edem Soul Music, her goal is to reach and teach people about positive self image, and belief in their purpose in this world. She performs all over the city including schools, youth centers, women's centers, and the Malcolm X Foundation to bring awareness to issues many people of color and people living in poverty face. 

Growing up in an African household, her mother would talk of the times she went through starvation, in a famine in Africa. She would also tell of the genocides and horrible atrocities that would strike neighboring villages and countries she would remember seeing/hearing about. Edem was taught many things, but showing compassion to other individuals was always priority number one.
