The new family/music reality show Ms. T’s Music Factory on Lifetime features former R&B recording artist Temmora (pronounced teh-MORE-uh). The wife of Dr. Arthur Levy, father of her four grown children, is showing the world what it’s like to run her music business, “Arommet Academy® ” a music boot camp for talented children — as well as managing her daughter, Miesha’s R&B group, Karma. (Arommet is Temmora spelled backwards.)
Before Temmora became a momanger in Eads, Tennessee, her 2005 hit song “There’s No Me” featuring Howard Hewett from the band Shalamar peaked at #26 on the Billboard R&B Songs chart. The album was released by 33rd Street Records, the label founded by Tower Records CEO Russ Solomon. Peter Frampton, Sammy Hagar, and Tuck & Patti, were in the catalog too. But the label folded in 2006.
Ironically, Alicia Keys’ song “Karma” was #24 on the chart that week. Destiny’s Child‘s “Girl” was #21. Temmora beat Usher’s “Caught Up” at #30. Fantasia’s “Truth Is” was #1. Ms. T’s Music Factory airs Thursdays at 10 pm on Lifetime, right after Little Women: Atlanta.
