Raheem DeVaughn and a moment of musical inspiration

Music is in the family for Raheem DeVaughn
It was perhaps no great surprise that American Raheem DeVaughn became a singer-songwriter. He is the son and cousin of professional musicians. He was born in 1975, the son of jazz and classical cellist Abdul Wadud (born Ronald DeVaughn), while his cousin is R&B artist Chrisette Michele. The young Raheem was raised in Maryland by his mother Imani Smith. He showed early promise from a young age, conducting musical classes at school. His favourite artist as a boy was another R&B singer, Babyface. Following an impromptu street gig in Baltimore, he began "cutting class to write lyrics and record". Raheem DeVaughn began to perform in clubs throughout the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, alongside the likes of W Ellington Felton of Unspoken Heard. At the time, he assumed an air of mystery. He would appear incognito, disguised underneath a hoodie, using the alias Chronkite and also sporting a cape and crown as the "underground king".

Other album titles include Love Behind the Melody, The Love and War MasterPeace, A Place Called Love Land and Love Sex Passion.
