So of course, you’re quite the controversial character on R&B Divas Atlanta. How has it BEen watching the season?
The 1st episode made me cry BEcause they didn’t really show everything, but it’s ok, they’re not going to turn me into Nicci GilBErt. I love Nicci, but whatever…I’m Miss Ketara Shavon Wyatt & I’m gonna do my thang & if people don’t like it, don’t watch, I don’t give a d@mn.
This Keke EP was completely done for the fans & is like another baby for you…how do you feel about the project?
Oh my God. I literally gave birth to this child. [laughs] It’s very intimate & personal. It;s very me, inside and out. I just feel that this here is going to let people know who Keke really is. From the BEginning, I feel like people always put me in this R&B box & that;s not all there is to me. I’m a bowl of gumbo. I have everything. I’m country, so naturally so, I love to sing country. And then, I love hip hop, I love rock, I love pop. Y’all know I love R&B and I adore gospel. This EP is pretty much giving the people all the different Keke’s inside of me.
I heard you mention you adore gospel; you have some big gospel things coming up too right?
I just redid “Great is Thou Faithfulness”, which was my grandmother’s favorite song. She used to sing it to me when I was a little girl & would have me sing it back to her & she died, so of course that song is very special to me. You guys will Be hearing that on the gospel stations real soon.
