R. Kelly is out with behind the scenes footage from his ‘Sign Of A Victory’ music video, which was chosen as the Offical World Cup 2010 Anthem. The Chicago R&B star was greeted with a hero’s welcome in South Africa. “We’re out here in Africa and we’re about to do the World Cup. I feel real good, I feel spiritual right now,” he said at his hotel room. “Of course I’m happy. I’m opening up the World Cup. Everything is in devine order and I’m feeling inspired right now musically and throughout my life, because it’s been a long road.”
Speaking from the stadium before his performance, Kelly got teary. “I just never thought that my music would bring me to South Africa, to perform in the middle of a field such as this,” he explained. “I never thought that my music would bring me to this point… I’ve been through a lot and to actually end up in a place like this, it just says no matter what you go through, you just keep on doing what you do. Keep working hard and you’ll still make it.”
‘Sign Of A Victory’ is featured on ‘Listen Up! The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Album’, out now on Epic Records. Watch the video via Vevo below.
