Johnny Kemp was born in The Bahamas and started singing at 13 before moving to the U.S. in 1979. He released his self-titled debut album in 1986 but it was his 1987 hit "Just Got Paid" that took him to the top of the R&B charts. Mr. Kemp is survived by his wife and two sons. We send our condolences to his family and fans.
