R. Kelly Background
R. Kelly, born as Robert Sylvester Kelly, was raised in Chicago, Illinois by
his single mother. He tapped into his musical talents at an early age, singing in the church choir when he was just eight
years old. He fell in love with singing, and music teacher Lena McLin took him under her wings and helped him hone his vocal
skills. He showcased his talents in his high school talent show and under the Chicago 'L' tracks, performing for strangers
and learning how to excite his audience.
In 1989, R. Kelly break-out onto the music scene when he and other artists,
such as Marc McWilliams, Vincent Walker, and Shawn Brooks, competed on the TV talent show, Big Break. Kelly won the grand
prize of $100,000, and his name was made in the music industry. In 1992 he released his debut album along with the musical
group Public Announcement, Born into the 90s, an album that yielded numerous hit singles, such as "Honey Love" and "Slow Dance
(Hey Mr. DJ)". Kelly and Public Announcement went on tour to promote their first album, but once the tour finished, Kelly
decided to split from the group and pursue his solo career.
Kelly's first solo album, 12 Play, churned out the R&B
artist's first number-one hit, "Bump N' Grind", which topped the Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart for twelve consecutive
weeks. From that moment, Kelly's career exploded. He has received three Grammy Awards for one of his most popular songs to
date, "I Believe I Can Fly", and has also played a major role in producing the music of other mainstream artists. Kelly has
worked with major artists like Aaliyah, Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Nas, Sean Combs, Fat Joe, and many more.
