On Saturday, April 2, 2011, for "One Night Only R & B Superstar R Kelly gave a private performance to benefit Clara's House/West Englewood United Organization. The evening included a variety of music, comedy and performances all designed to revive the 1950's era of elegant entertainment.
Guests enjoyed VIP service at The Vibe Chicago (formerly Crobar). The Host Committee was chaired by Fox Chicago News Anchor Robin Robinson, and includes leaders from the city's philanthropic, hospitality, artistic and business communities.
During his tour behind 2009's Untitled, Kelly began performing two songs by the late soul singer Sam Cooke. That set--as well as a Sam Cooke- themed party that Kelly threw at his Chicago home-- inspired his recently released new record Love Letter (Jive), an old-school R&B album that explores, among other things, the subjects of love and forgiveness. ~Interview Magazine
