R. Kelly Perform National Anthem And Hits a 3-Pointer At Nets' Game

(Radio.com) R. Kelly sang the national anthem to jumpstart the Brooklyn Nets' basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks at Brooklyn's Barclays Center Tuesday (Nov.17). But he didn't stop there: he showed off his b-ball skills with an all-net 3-pointer and a post-game performance.

Kells was still in his performance gear--blazer, sunglasses, and a cigar in his mouth--when he took a shot from behind the 3-point line. And it was all net. It summed up a great night for Kells and the Nets, who beat the Atlanta Hawks 90-88.

Kelly's new album Buffet will be dropping on December 11. As Radio.com previously reported, the singer is expected to expand genres on his forthcoming set.

'I have fans from numerous generations listening to my music now and I wanted to provide everyone with something they could enjoy" said R. Kelly in a prepared statement. 'With The Buffet, I wanted to showcase a variety of my musical sounds and include all the genres I love on one project."
