R Kelly

Robert Sylvester Kelly is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer who has been convicted on racketeering and sex offender charges. With a discography that spanned three decades, Kelly has sold over 75 million records worldwide, making him the most commercially successful male R&B artist of the 1990s and one of the world's best-selling music artists. He won three Grammys for his song "I Believe I Can Fly," and several additional nominations for his song "You Are Not Alone" recorded by Michael Jackson. Critics have dubbed him "the King of R&B." while he had proclaimed himself the "Pied Piper of R&B." Starting in the 1990s, Kelly faced accusations of using his fame to lure young fans, including minors, into inappropriate sexual relationships. He stood trial in 2008 on child pornography charges, winning acquittal.
