Three-time Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Raheem DeVaughn is gearing up for his 6th Studio album on October 19th, 2018, Decade of a Love King (2018) promises to take listeners to new heights and celebrate the sound that the last 10 years have brought him to, creatively and sonically. Originally signed to Jive Records, Raheem’s first three albums—The Love Experience (2005), Love Behind the Melody (2008) which reached #1 on the Top 10 R&B Hip-Hop Albums Chart and earned him two Grammy nominations (Best Male R&B Vocal Performance “Woman” and Best R&B Song: “Customer”), one BET Award, two BET J Virtual Awards for “Male Artist of the Year” and “Album of the Year.” The Love & War MasterPeace (2010) which has been deemed his most ambitious album to date and earned Raheem another Grammy Nomination in 2011 for his entire body of work for Best R&B Album of the Year, and resulted in chart-topping singles like “You,” “Customer” and the female-empowerment anthem “Woman.”
Stepping out as an independent artist for his 2013 release, A Place Called Love Land, Raheem remained consistent in his artistry and the same holds true with his last album Love, Sex & Passion (2015), having reached Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums at #4, Billboard’s Independent Albums at #2 and Billboard 200 at #31.
Since then, Raheem has taken a philanthropic stance by creating the LoveLife Foundation in 2014, with the mission to improve lives through social development, education, and health and wellness by collaborating with community organizations and foundations to raise awareness and tackle issues that affect our communities. Raheem is committed to raising awareness and funding for those causes that are closest to his Heart related to Youth and Education, Women’s Issues and Community initiatives that include – HIV/AIDS Awareness, Domestic Violence, Feeding, and Clothing the Homeless and Disadvantaged, Music and the Arts. Partnerships supporting Raheem’s efforts include the (CDC) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase prevention and awareness for HIV/AIDS (2010-2015) and the Globally recognized AHF (AIDS Healthcare Foundation – 2016 to present).
Continuing to set the bar higher for himself in life and in music, Raheem’s humanitarian effort doesn’t end there. He has teamed up with the USO in Europe to meet and perform for hundreds of U.S. troops and their families. This 8-day, 4-country USO entertainment tour, enabled Raheem to visit five military bases in Germany, Belgium, the UK, and the Netherlands. Among the places visited were Royal Air Force Menwith Hill, Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, Joint Force Command Brunssum, Spangdahlem Air Base and Ramstein Air Base.
