King of the World
Robert Sylvester Kelly is the real name of the man we know as R. Kelly, born in 1967. He has achieved industry titles others will never earn: singer, record producer, songwriter, and even semi-professional basketball player. Along the way, he has collected more accolades than we can count!
The “King of R&B” has sold more than 75 million records worldwide, making him the 55th best-selling music artist in America. R. Kelly has Grammys, BET Awards, American Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and even the NAACP Image Award.
That last one? Might need to be revoked, as it turns out.
