Hailing from the projects of New Jersey, rapper-turned-R&B singer Jaheim promotes a message of appreciation in his soul-fueled slow jams. On 2013’s Appreciation Day, Jaheim expresses his appreciation for beautiful women, but the real object behind the album’s title are the fans that propelled his last five albums to the Top Five of the Billboard R&B Albums chart. With lead single “Age Ain’t A Factor,” the singer declares that his gratitude is equal opportunity – the music video features Vivica A. Fox as the song’s aging, but still beautiful, subject. Jaheim’s passionate odes to life and love have earned him three Grammy nominations, including Best R&B Album for 2010’s Another Round and Best R&B Song for hit single “Finding My Way Back.” Ticket buyers are also appreciative, showering Jaheim with rave reviews of his gospel-influenced live shows on 2013’s Appreciation Tour and eagerly awaiting his upcoming performances with R&B songstress Chrisette Michele.
