This will be Kelly's first outdoor performance in NYC in almost a decade.
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) JUNE 14, 2017
Republishing press release by Dave Rodney PR Web
R Kelly fans, start your ignitions! The pied piper is coming to Queens, New York for a big date on Sunday June 25th, 2017. The R&B icon is expected to ignite New York City with musical flames when he headlines the annual Groovin' In The Park concert at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens. This will be Kelly’s first outdoor performance in New York City in almost a decade.
"This summer is about to be lit. Can't wait to turn up at #RoyWilkinsPark June 25th in QUEENS, NY for #GroovinInThePark," the R&B artiste tweeted a few days ago.
“R Kelly is one of the world's greatest entertainers," said event CEO Christopher Roberts, of Groovin' Inc. "His performance of Trapped in the Closet at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards is regarded as one of most iconic VMA performances ever. His performance at BET's 25th Anniversary is another standout moment that fans still marvel about. New York fans, brace yourself for an extraordinary performance from the R&B legend when he graces the stage at Groovin' In The Park 2017. I promise it will be epic,” said Roberts.
R Kelly is a master producer, composer and performer and he is known for delivering music that is spiritual, inspirational and extremely sexual. He made his mark with his smash hit I Believe I Can Fly that won three Grammy Awards and appeared on the soundtrack for Michael Jordan’s movie, Space Jam.
World's Greatest was the anthem for the 1996 summer Olympics in Atlanta and a duet I’m Your Angel with French-Canadian pop diva Celine Dion catapulted R Kelly to international stardom and astonishing commercial success. Kelly has sold more than 38 million albums and his catalogue has yielded more than 40 hits.
And another R&B icon, Stephanie Mills, has just been added to the lineup too. Mills has been a huge all-time favorite for New Yorkers and a staple on classic soul radio stations nationally. She has enjoyed a dazzling career that has spanned several decades. Her number one chart-topper Home from the Broadway musical The Wiz kicked off what appeared to be a barrage of unending hits. Her smash singles include Good All Over, (You're Puttin') A Rush On Me, Something In The Way (You Make Me Feel), and one of her warmest love songs, Never Knew Love Like This Before won her a Grammy in 1980 for best R & B vocal performance.
R Kelly and Stephanie Mills will join a dazzling galaxy of reggae stars for the park performance. Busy Signal, one of reggae's current hit machines in from Jamaica will be doing his first performance on US soil. Other reggae luminaries on the bill are Tarrus Riley, Freddie McGregor, Ken Boothe, Leroy Sibbles and U Roy with Lloyd Parks & We The People Band accompanied by a mass choir and a symphony orchestra.
Groovin' In The Park is in its seventh year, and in the past, the annual summer concert has featured Air Supply, Michael Bolton, TGT, Patti Labelle, Boyz 11 Men, Gladys Knight, Babyface, Beres Hammond, Jimmy Cliff, Toots Hibbert and many other A listers from pop, R&B and reggae. Gates open at 11:00 AM.

Khari Kill discusses new video premiere of D Ting Send on Massive B Label's Skateland Riddim
I recently spoke to Khari Kill about his new production D Ting Send with Bobby Konders on the Skateland Riddim and the premiere of his new video for it which is again receiving the posititive attention of DJs worldwide. The Skateland Riddim released by Massive B on 12/4/15 also features Junior Reid, Eek a Mouse, Burro Banton, Lorde Leno, and Ras Gode. Our conversation on Khari's recent work, his Born to Rule clothing line and upcoming plans for 2016 follow.
Empress K: Is this your first time working with Bobby Konders since originally coming together on Picture of Selassie?
Khari Kill: Yes and no. He produced a couple previous songs before, however it was not full promotion with those productions. This is the first one that is getting a lot of feedback like Picture of Selassie. It’s going very good. I’ve been getting dub requests from Europe, Trinidad, France, and England - a lot of promotional dubs. A lot of djs are loving it. I got a good word from Jamaica as well - Bobby told me this when they played it on Irie FM. It’s only been out two weeks now.
Empress K: How did this project come about?
Khari Kill: Bobby Konders is always in Brooklyn and keeps an event called Fire Sundays every Sunday. From time to time when I am in town, I stop by. As the years go by we keep the relationship and when he has something coming up, he lets me know. As I mentioned he had two previous riddims: The 2010 Computer Riddim and the Jah Love Riddim that he also released, however they did not have full promotion as this new one has.
Skateland Riddim on Itunes
I already know it’s a platform for me so once I get a riddim from Bobby Konders, then I’m happy because my best is able to be seen.
Empress K: Tell me about the concept of your new video for the song. I noticed some familiar scenery in Brooklyn.
Khari Kill: Yes, I was in Brooklyn at the same time. Everything was synchronized so nicely. The song was voiced by Takashi music studios on Nostrand and Atlantic (1281 Atlantic). That is the most recent studio I’ve been going to.
Khari Kill: A lot of people don’t realize I’m a double artist - I’m an artist and an artiste. I paint and the more I get into the music, I’m relaxed and have more time to show my paintings so I was able to do it with Born to Rule . That album was done in California by I Dwell records. Yeah, I did the artwork for it; I still have the artwork hanging in my house.
Empress K: What other artistic creations can we expect from you?
I took a rest from it just to deal with getting the new single on the road. Prior to the single I was doing a lot of art on clothing such as sneakers. Right now I’m wearing some custom made Pumas that I painted with full artwork. I’ve done three orders already and they go for $350. People see them and they are wowed and go crazy so I give them my card and they call to order.
Empress K: I’m familiar with your Born to Rule clothing line. It looks like it is featured in your new video?
Khari Kill: Yes, I had a couple pieces in it. In the box that was delivered where he opens it up and there are Born to Rule cds and the black sweater with full embroidery. It is called Drummers On The World. Also The hand painted designs cost more and I’m wearing a hand painted shirt with Haile Selassie I and Empress Menen. A lot of people know that picture with him and she is holding a red umbrella.
What do you have for upcoming shows?
Well I just came off some shows in California. I’m being blessed this year coming. I have not been able to travel for the last three years out of America so that is why I have not been able to do any European, Costa Rican and African shows that are waiting for me. In February / March I’ll be blessed with my wings again as I call it so I’ll be able to fly again and do these international shows next year. And I will be doing shows at the end of January with JahDan BlakkaMoore for a tour on the West Coast.
Empress K: Thanks for your time today. I look forward to seeing you on tour soon. You spoke about the positive message in your music. is there an additional message that you would like to share with your fans and supporters.
Khari Kill: As tough as it is , just know that you are not alone and hold on to any struggles. That’s the message I would like people to hear.
