R. Kelly is facing life behind bars after being charged with a string of sexual abuse charges.
And while the sheer amount of evidence has effectively seen him dropped by the industry at large, not all have severed ties with the embattled Pied Piper.
For, a small group of fans took to the streets of his native Chicago yesterday to march in demand of his freedom.

The protest comes after Kelly attempted to argue the need for release, due to many at the Chicago Correctional Facility he’s being held at becoming ill amidst the pandemic.
His request was denied, as the judge felt he might intimidate witnesses.
Per reports, Kelly’s trial will commence in September.
