Robert Sylvester Kelly Wiki Biography

American record producer, singer/songwriter, actor, as well as music executive and rapper Robert Sylvester Kelly, was born on 8 January 1967, in Chicago, Illinois. Better known by his simpler stage name of R. Kelly, he has been in the music industry since his debut in 1992 as a member of the R&B group “Public Announcement”. Soon Kelly became known for such hit songs as “The World’s Greatest”, “I Believe I Can Fly” and “If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time”. Kelly then switched his career path to record producing, and helped Aaliyah as well as Michael Jackson among many other artists with their releases.

As a well-known singer and producer, how rich is R. Kelly then? According to authoritative sources, R. Kelly’s net worth is estimated to be over $150 million, as of early 2017, perhaps unsurprising considering in 2014 album sales of “Black Panties” were estimated to be over $350,000 from the same number of copies sold. The majority of R. Kelly’s wealth comes from the music industry.

Kelly sang with the church choir from age eight, so when attending Kenwood Academy, with the encouragement of his teacher he performed in a talent show hosted by the school. Inspired to become a singer, R. Kelly began performing on the streets, and joined the Chicago “L” group, but eventually created his own band called “MGM” with whom he even released a single. The band’s big break came in 1989 when they participated in a television show actually called “Big Break”, with Kelly going on to win the grand prize. MGM disbanded soon after and Kelly continued with a solo career, releasing his debut album called “Born into the 90s” in 1992, which produced two #1 hits, namely “Slow Dance” and “Honey Love” and was an overall success. Kelly continued working on his music, and a year later presented the public with his next album entitled “12 Plays”, which hit #1 on the Billboard charts, and with two successful singles that sold over 500,000 copies in the US alone, really established R. Kelly in the music industry.

In 1994 Kelly stepped away from singing, and helped Aaliyah produce her debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number”. At the time, Kelly also worked as a writer and mixer and collaborate withd such artists as Barry White and Toni Braxton with their songs too. R. Kelly then wrote a song for Michael Jackson called “You Are Not Alone”, for which he received two Grammy nominations, so his fame as well as his net worth was certainly reaching the heights.

Following his successful singing career, in 1996 R. Kelly released what would soon become one of his most notable songs – “I Believe I Can Fly”, which was featured on the soundtrack of the movie “Space Jam” with Michael Jordan, peaked at #2 on the Billboard charts and won three Grammy Awards as well.

Throughout his singing career, R. Kelly has released fifteen studio albums, the latest being the release of “White Panties” in 2014.

In his personal life, R. Kelly was married to Aaliyah in 1994, but it was annulled in ’95 apparently because she was just 15. He subsequently married Andrea in 1996, but they divorced in 2009. He is now believed to be single.

1French braids
2Frequently wears a Zorro mask
1You know, I love plays. I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director.
2I've always had mostly women come out to see me perform. That's the reason the guys show up; they know R. Kelly is going to draw the women. Most of the songs I'm singing are catering to women anyway.
3I've been blackmailed a billion times. I've been sued for ridiculous things. At one point in my life, I was an ATM machine. But I'm used to that. You don't get used to it, but I'm used to the fact that people will do this, even your own family members, and I don't hate none of them.
4My mother always told me if you write about life, you will always be in the game. Just don't write songs... write life. I decided to take her up on that.
5My mother wasn't rich, and I never seen my father. I was a street performer. I've been shot. And now I'm known around the world, and I've touched a lot of people with my music. That's one of the great testimonies that's gonna go down in history.
6When I first came in the business, I had a couple of close calls on planes going to London for shows. There was one time where the plane had to fly around until a storm ended, and then we started having a question about fuel, so we had to go through the storm. It was the worst thing that ever happened in my life. That really messed me up.
7There was a time I desperately needed for the world to know that I was no category guy. My whole goal in life was to reach that certain success where people will say, 'Hey, that guy can do anything. He's the Evel Knievel of music. He's jumping over 15 buses!'
8I'm the Ali of today. I'm the Marvin Gaye of today. I'm the Bob Marley of today. I'm the Martin Luther King, or all the other greats that have come before us. And a lot of people are starting to realize that now.
9I'm very responsible. And with ability you have to have responsibility. I'm not perfect. But you have to make sure that your children will know that daddy makes mistakes.
10When you hear romantic music, it makes you want to take your girl out to dinner or buy her something or take her out in the moonlight or take her on a walk.
11'Love Letter' reminds me of 'Chocolate Factory' and 'Happy People.' It's a little bit of both of those, yeah. I just wanted it to be classy, man. And romantic. And maybe 10 percent sexy.
12Music is very powerful and can make you feel whatever it is. If you listen to gospel, you're going to feel thankful, and you're going to want to call up people that you hate and tell them that you love them. When you listen to sexual music, it gets you in the mood.
13I want America to know that you can't believe everything you hear, and nowadays, you can't believe everything you see.
14R. Kelly is an image, a brand. That's my job. There's a whole other side of me that's Robert, who is a father, a friend. But then I put on the game face and go into the studio and do the music. That's just another day at the office.
15My fans have always loved my metaphors.
16I have always been infatuated with country music. Country music tells stories, and I've always loved to tell stories. I said that when I establish myself as an artist that can do pretty much anything I want to do in music, I'm going to make a country album.
17Just listen to all this sweet, sweet music. I'm working the music.
18I like to give people more than their money's worth.
19When I think of musical geniuses, I think of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and Prince.
20My music has shaken hands with the world somehow - it's a beautiful disease, and I'm glad I got it.
21When I was performing on streets, there was no pressure. People accepted me. They loved me without knowing me.
22Once I started singing, I didn't have to try to be cool. I was just one of the coolest guys around.
23I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director. So most of my songs come in a play form, you know, where there are characters and stories, so I like to go beyond just the song sometimes.
24I wouldn't be able to do the songs as long as I've been doing if I didn't feel the pulse of the world. But I can feel people and I know what they want. I feel like I know how they are, because I am the people. And I just have a gift.
25I still feel like I'm alone at times - even if I'm in the midst of a million people. Because no one - including me - understands my mind creatively. I haven't really been formally introduced to my gift yet. I feel like I'm still on the runway.
26I'm in love with music, and I'm pregnant by it. It's like having twins. Or triplets. Or eight-lets!
27Not only did I get an A in music but I got an A in ladies.
28I am very conscious of who I am as an artist and as an inspirational person.
29You know, I'm no different from a fireman. You got to run into a fire no matter how big the blaze is.
30I learnt a whole lot from my mother. About music, relationships, being a good person, loving people, the whole of life. I learnt about everything from her. Every single day I think about her. All through the day.
31If there's no fire, there's no scream. If there's no scream, then no one hears you and no one comes to help you in the first place. The depth of my struggle has definitely determined the height of my success. To be able to teach my kids not just about success but about the struggle that comes with it.
32If I'm going to be a leader then I have to go places that other people are afraid to go to. That's what makes a leader. To be not afraid to step out and go over the frontline. To stare darkness right in the face.
33I want people to notice my writing abilities are real and that I'm not just stuck in one situation.
34I look at my music in the beginning, and the sexual songs, the partying songs, those are the realities because those things happen.
35I was the highest-paid street performer, probably, in the history of Chicago. I was making like $800 a day.
36When you're me, when you're R. Kelly, everybody wants a piece of you, and if you don't give 'em a piece they'll find a way to get a piece of you one way or the other.
37I've really been writing a lot of country songs. I used to get criticized for doing a 'Bump & Grind,' then turning around and doing a gospel song. But the truth is I'm glad I have a gift that allows me to switch lanes.
38I've programmed myself musically to come up with love-feeling tracks that are romantic, sexy, but classy, all in one. And that's the challenge. Once I create that music, then the lyrical content starts to come - you know, the stories and things like that.
39If you're gonna tell your life story, you gotta be honest, or don't do it.
40I only feel sorry for weak people. And mostly what I've come to find is that the weak people are the ones that are the haters.
41They say marriage will change you but it didn't change me. Being in love changed me.
42Love has never failed. It has won every battle. And today and forever more it will go on undefeated. I'm also a very loving person.
43In life, you have people that love to party. That's me. People that love God. That's me. People that love sex. That's me. People that love people. That's me. And people that make mistakes.That's me also.
44Well, I believe that the depth of your struggle can determine the height of your success. I was inspired to come out of everything I've been through and end up in a place where I never thought that I would be.
45My greatest competition is, well, me.
46You're younger, you might want to go to clubs and kick it, but as you get older, you start seeing that life has more meaning to it. The people that you love are the people you want to start trusting and start wanting them to trust you and start respecting them.
47People can say whatever they want about you without knowing the facts. They can criticize you without even knowing you, and hate you when they don't even know you. All of a sudden, you're, like, the bin Laden of America. Osama bin Laden is the only one who knows exactly what I'm going through. Interview with Blender Magazine, September 2003.
