KeKe Wyatt stars in TV One's reality docu-series "R&B Divas."

Ketara Shavon Wyatt, better known as KeKe Wyatt, the daughter of a Caucasian vocalist mother and an African American organist/vocalist father, started singing at age two. KeKe grew up in the church, where the family had the image of a happy Christian family, but behind closed doors there were problems stemming from abuse and also adversity experienced by the family's multi-racial background.

As a teen KeKe performed with various girl groups, even auditioning for the group that evolved into Destiny's Child. Her critically acclaimed duets with Avant and her own platinum-selling solo debut album "Soul Sista" marked the arrival of one of R&B's brightest stars. At the height of her career breakthrough, KeKe's private struggle with domestic violence became the main focus in the media, rather than her newly-released album. In 2001, Wyatt was arrested for stabbing her husband; the charges were later dropped, but her career suffered from the negative attention.

In 2004, the songstress signed to Cash Money Records. Despite a successful single with "Put Your Hands on Me," the album's sales suffered when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans causing a national catastrophe. KeKe signed with TVT Records in 2006 and recorded the "Ghetto Rose" album, but the label 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. The release of her second album, "Who Knew?" by Shanachie in 2010 marked her return to the spotlight and she released her third CD, "Unbelievable!" in 2011.

In addition to her active music and family life, KeKe serves as a spokesperson for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
