WHAT IS LOVE? is the exciting debut album from phenomenally talented Gospel and R&B singer Emem Archibong.
Steeped in the classic Soul of legendary artists such as Aretha Franklin and CeCe Winans and influenced by the modern R&B sounds of Alicia Keys, with ‘What is Love?’ Emem looks set to be 2011’s most hotly-tipped Gospel cross-over artist and her mini album heralds the arrival on the British black music scene of a special new talent. Born in Nigeria, Emem grew up in Bradford, England where her remarkably soulful and powerful singing voice was nurtured in her local church’s choir and Gospel music and her strong Christian faith underpin her unique sound. From rousing opener ‘Black and White’ and funky feel-good track ‘Trying to be myself’ to stand out debut single ‘what is Love?’ and deeply personal anthem ‘Not too Late’ the E.P showcases Emem’s truly outstanding vocal talent and ‘Angel,’ ‘Untold Story’ and ‘Trying to be Myself’ also announce Emem as a truly captivating new voice on the British music scene.
