r kelly Biography

R. Kelly, the American R&B songwriter-singer, record producer, performer and arranger, was born on January 8, 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. He has been dubbed King of R&B. He made his debut in 1992 with Public Announcement, a hip-hop and R&B group. In 1993 he went solo and released the set “12 Play.” Kelly is known for his numerous hit singles, including “Trapped in the Closet,” “I'm a Flirt,” “The World's Greatest,” “If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time,” “Ignition (Remix),” “Gotham City,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” “Your Body's Callin'” and “Bump N' Grind.” For his hit single “I Believe I Can Fly” Kelly won three 1998 Grammy Awards.

Kelly has also performed and produced many songs by other hip-hop and R&B artists. Kelly wrote and produced Aaliyah's debut album in 1993 as well as Michael Jackson's track “You Are Not Alone.” Kelly has also sung hooks on many well-known hip-hop songs, including Young Jeezy's “Go Getta,” Nick Cannon's “Gigolo,” Fat Joe's “We Thuggin” and The Notorious B.I.G's “Fuckin' You Tonight.” He also collaborated with Jay-Z on two albums.

Kelly has also been involved in several sex scandals. Reports surfaced of him marrying Aaliyah, who was a teenager at the time. They annulled their marriage. In 2002 Kelly was indicated with several child pornography counts. In 2008, after several delays, the case finally went to trail. Kelly was found not guilty by the jury on each of the 14 counts.
