TAMPA, FL – World famous singer/songwriter/record producer R. Kelly has announced that he will be bringing back his innovative and inspiring vocal talents to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Thursday, May 1, 2014. Often called the “King of R&B”, R. Kelly will be joined by GRAMMY®-nominated R&B singer/songwriter Tamar Braxton.
In an era of declining songwriting skills and auto tune crooning R. Kelly embodies the best traditions of American music as a vocalist, songwriter and producer. Despite selling millions of recordings and writing classic songs for himself and many others, this Chicago based singer-songwriter continues to push his art forward with “Write Me Back”, a dynamic twelve song collection that is part of his extraordinary 2012 — The Year of the R. In an era where hip hop has overshadowed R&B as mainstream music, R. Kelly has reinforced his credentials as “the R in R&B.”
Tamar Braxton is an up and coming singer/songwriter who has already been nominated for 3 Grammy® awards. Her album and song by the same name, “Love and War”, was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance.
