JUST WHEN KERI'S MUSIC IS ON THE RISE AGAIN

Following the mother of one's triumphant comeback to the stage last October at the Bakewell Media's Taste of Soul, one would expect the new year to proceed on a splendid note for the music icon.

And just when her world had become perfect, the mother of one got hit with this new tragedy, the loss of the most important, oldest male figure in her life.

However, with her sad loss, the "Turnin me On" singer, who made her debut at age 12 via a piano recital, has experienced a setback, which the world hopes would not hold her back from rocking the new year.
