Kenna Zemedkun (Ge'ez: ኬና ዜሜደኩነ), the Grammy Nominated artist, known professionally as simply Kenna, is an Ethiopian-born American musician. The eldest son of an immigrant family that relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio (and later raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia), Kenna began to express an interest in music upon receiving a copy of U2's ''The Joshua Tree''. The way he was discovered and the obstacles he faced to land a record deal are briefly discussed in Malcolm Gladwell's 2005 book ''Blink''. His track "Say Goodbye To Love" was nominated for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in the 2009 Grammy Awards.
