r kelly R. Kelly Performs At World Cup Opening Ceremony

R. Kelly hit the stage at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Opening Ceremony in Johannesburg, South Africa recently. The R&B veteran performed a new song entitled ‘Sign of Victory’ alongside the Soweto Spiritual Singers. Check out the performance below:

Songs like this are what separate R. Kelly from many of his younger counterparts who can’t seem to sing about anything except love, sex and relationships. He is truly a profound artist who can craft songs encompassing a wide range of emotions; inspiring listeners across the spectrum. While there have been many pretenders who have attempted to claim the title of the ‘King of R&B’, it is important to remember that it takes a lot more than 1 gold-certified album and 1 top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 to be called the greatest. Recognise.

Thoughts?

    How ironic the peado performing beside spiritual singers. more blasphemous than the Alejandro video

    I agree the younger singers should take note because your’e a REAL SAANNGGGGGGERRRRR when you can carry notes and be heard in a stadium that large. We got alot of studio singers out right now that you can barely hear in a small room full of people.

    I agree with what Trent said. R. Kelly is truely a legend, despite his choices in the past. I didn’t see the interview that TGJ did with Trey Songz, but from the comments, it really did seem as if he was acting cocky with the success of his lastest album. I hope Trey had a change of heart or isn’t really cocky, but he still can’t touch R. Kelly. Neither can Chris Brown, and I am a huge fan of Chris. Also, I would like to add that I don’t understand how someone could ever think that their opinions could ever be taken seriously if they can’t even say or type a person’s name. It’s Chris Brown, not “Fist.” It shows maturity when you can state your opinion, and still be able to say their name, even if you don’t like them.

    @ KYU93. R.Kelly has always been talented. But the reality is that his lyrics are soo sexual just like Trey Songz. He was acquitted. I am not the one to judge him and neither should you.

    I know you think your perfect. But the fact is that you’ve probably done some f***** up s*** in your life. If you were never forgiven for what you did…where would you be?

    Your just a dumb f*** posting s*** online because your depressed and have no friends.

    http://digitaldreamdoor.nutsie.com/pages/best_rb-vocalists-ma.html – look on that list Kellz is at #87 of Best R&B (that means there are 86 better than him)

    Not hating, but all he be singing about nowadays is s**, s**, s**, I could barely make it through his latest album (though Crazy Night and Echo are GREAT songs)…no diversity anymore :\

    Look here the world need haters like the ones who are hating on the Chicago Blackhawks winning the cup; The world need haters to hate on the Boston Celtics because the Celtics has a better history than the Lakers and is the first NBA team made in the NBA; The world need haters because they cannot do it like R Kelly.

    Trey Songz went gold and Kmichelle blasted him on her mix tape; R Kelly wrote his own songs and written and produced Sign of a victory by himself and went out on into the Worlds TV & Radio waves in the Worlds number 1 sport to end Apartheid & Global Warming & Hunger & a*** relief, The song was Crowned as the number 1 Theme song for the games for Tutu & Mandela’s approval at King!

    R Kelly continues to rein supreme, by the way h** or punk f*****, R Kelly sold four million units in europe alone without US promotion, And to top that off he even made $750,000 in Uganda for a performance of 45 minutes time; his Untitled album dropped to 63 on the top 200 billboard and climb over the top 50!

    Guess what is climbing up to top ten certified platinum plus!

    Ops! Trey emptied all his clips on his album Ready releasing all his singles going gold and his album can’t climb anymore becuase of promotional releases, now he is trying to promote his mix tape to sell untis! hahahah

    R Kelly King of R&B and Carrying Michael Jacksons Mantra and pop throne till the day he dies

    Yes R Kelly is consistent. His music and undeniable testament to his great success after all these year and everything Robert has been through all the b******* HATERS who just won’t GO AWAY!!! R Kelly still has the talent and great sound that still classifies him as the KING of R&B R Kelly an original artist. R Kelly is the last of truly great ones. No has come along yet to replace him.

    Yall can say I’m hating or whatever, but I saw that tape and I believed it was him and I was completely disgusted. I can never listen to his music or look at him the same and I used to love his music. I think he is talented, but I do believe that he is a p********, therefore I cannot ever buy another one of his albums no matter how bad I want to. Seems like he used his fame and money to “woo” underage girls, which makes it even worse because I indirectly contributed to it. I came to this post because I genuiely wanted to see his performance because I know it was probably good but I abstained. I just can’t f*** with R. Kelly… #thatisall

    R . KELLY IS TALENTED BUT HE DOESN’T DESERVE THE TITLE “KING OF R&B”
    STEVIE WONDER AND MARVIN GAYE’S MUSIC CATALOG SHITS ALL OVER HIS MUSIC ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT R. KELLY ISN’T REALLY ORIGINAL. HE STOLE A LOT OF HIS STYLE FROM AARON HALL. ANYBODY WHO SINGS SONGS LIKE “YOU REMIND ME OF MY JEEP” “HALF ON A BABY”& “FEELIN ON YA BOOTY” IS QUESTIONABLE IN TERMS OF SUBSTANCE #KANYESHRUG

    Tremaine cannot step foot in Africa because he disrespected R Kelly and when he hit the Europe tour R Kelly will become more thank you will ever know as the best Artist!
    Nobody is spitting & writing like him and all by himself?
    Cop[rights and demos are his! Trey got ripped off by allowing people to write for him and going gold, his measly 600,000 units become minute or moot.

    Sound of a Victory will gross more than Trey’s whole album of singles and catalog!
    Actually R Kelly’s catalog craps all over Tremaine over and over into diapers!
