Factually speaking, we’re in an era where vocal ability is almost an “etcetera” for singers rather than a requirement.
Thankfully, there are still a select few flying the flag for talent. Case in point R. Kelly.
The R&B star, whose new album ‘The Buffet’ drops December 11th, performed the US National Anthem (The Star Spangled Banner) at the Brooklyn Nets NBA game last night at the Barclays Center.
Proving his voice has aged like a fine wine, Robert belted like no other.
This, folks, is what we call “the” standard.
The actual slay, though.
Hopefully, showings like this will serve as an inspiration to those some of the slacking acts vying for the lane Mr. Kelly still dominates. Trey Songz we’re looking at you.
