R. Kelly Sums Up His Life In 45 Minute Song

(Radio.com) R. Kelly got candid with GQ Magazine in a recent interview about his career and the troubles in his past. The publication asked the R&B star to sit in front of a camera and sing a short story about his life. R. Kelly went above and beyond giving a moving performance that lasted forty-five minutes.

The singer shared moments from his life like getting shot while he was riding his bike, making hundreds of dollars performing in front of his local McDonald's, making the move from Chicago to Venice Beach, and his deep relationship with his mother.

"I said I promise you momma, no matter what, by any means necessary, I will be one of the best singers, songwriters this world has ever seen," Kelly says. You can watch the original version and abridged version here.
