There was a good decade-plus to what Lemar was doing with music before he appeared on ‘Fame Academy’. “I was first turned onto music by Jodeci,” Lemar tells Living Abroad Magazine. “I remember listening to their albums on the bus to school about 10 maybe 12 years ago and thinking that it was what I wanted to do, but I put it out of my mind because I had no idea how to pursue it. I knew I could sing the song they way they did it, but I had no idea how to do anything else about it, so I turned to books for a while. Books, books, books, books, books and then one day I met a like-minded friend and he introduced me to a crew and that helped to turn it around.”
