Video: R. Kelly Wraps Up Pitchfork Music Festival


The singer closes his 90-minute set at the three-day festival with hit 'I Believe I Can Fly' and countless of dove-shaped balloons released in the air.

R. Kelly wrapped up Pitchfork Music Festival at Chicago's Union Park on Sunday, July 21. Kelly opened his 90-minute set with a choir for "Ignition (Remix)". He went on to perform some of his hits, which included a capella rendition of "Sex in the Kitchen".

The 46-year-old singer also performed his other hits like "Bump n' Grind", "Hotel", "Thoia Thoing", "Fiesta" and "Happy People". "I didn't realize I had so many songs!" he told his fans during a break. "Every time I do a song, it brings back old memories from my own life."

"As I look at the crowd tonight and see people that love me... I've been at this 27 years. 27 f**kin' years and y'all still feelin' me, yeaaah-heaa," he continued.

He closed his set with his hit track, "I Believe I Can Fly", and dedicated it to his hometown. "I dedicate this next song to Chicago," he said. Along with a choir, Kelly led the fans to sing along to the inspirational song. At the end of the performance, Kelly released countless of dove-shaped white balloons in the air.

M.I.A. took the stage before Kelly. Wearing a gold and glittery top, she was accompanied by several background dancers to perform her songs like "Bad Girls" and "Paper Planes". Lady GaGa was spotted attending the festival. The 27-year-old pop singer is photographed donning a loose Suicidal Tendencies white T-shirt and enjoying M.I.A.'s set with some friends.
