TIMELINE

R. Kellybutton.gif (123 bytes) R. Kelly was born on January 8, 1968 and grew up in Chicago. Even though the odds were against Kelly as he grew up in the projects of Chicago, getting shot during a mugging and the guidance of his mother and a teacher helped Kelly stay away from gangs and turn to basketball and eventually music. In the mid-90s, R. Kelly rose out as a solo act into the limelight of R&B and pop radio with his smooth style and songwriting. At the turn of the decade, Kelly was making money performing his music to an audience - it was on the streets of Chicago, but the money was increasing. Kelly's big break came while he was singing at a friend's barbecue in front of other guests that included a representative from Jive Records. Soon Kelly signed with the record label.
