About the Author
R. Kelly, the king of R&B, makes music of epic proportions. After 18 years of stardom, the prolific multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocalist continues to forge an artistic path that caters to fantasy and captures the hearts of adoring fans. This is, in essence, how an artist sells over 34 million records, and wears the crown of a king. It is this uncanny ability to compose countless classics and deliver electrifying live performances that defines everything that is essential R. Kelly. It’s why he is the recipient of multiple Grammy, Billboard, BMI, and American Music Awards. R. Kelly lives and produces music out of his Chocolate Factory Studio in the heart of Chicago.

I learned a great many things about him, and I felt his sincerity and honesty shine through on the pages. For as gifted as he is, I was very surprised to learn of his mental handicap, which I feel he's dealt with perfectly. He doesn't delve deeply into his love life much, but he does touch on it. Soulacoaster is about R's musical journey, his pains, his struggles, his losses and his faith. He did a beautiful job taking the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride, and there were some parts that touched me deeply and brought me to tears because his pain was so heartfelt and truthful.
I have always been a fan of R. Kelly from the moment I first saw him on a talent show called Big Break, hosted by Natalie Cole. I remember watching the night his group won and I couldn't help but to wonder who this sexy soulful singer was. And who knew that decades later, I'd find out who that man was. Everything he went through was for a purpose, and I'm proud to say I own every single recording that he has ever put out. I never judged him, like so many did, about the child pornography scandal, because in my heart of hearts I just never quite believed what the media and folks were saying, and he put that scandal to rest in this book.
He does start out telling the reader that there are many details and some names that had to be changed to protect the innocent, and also for legal reasons in which he could not divulge all, and I applaud him for that. I can't stand when celebrities tell things just for the sake of selling a book, and R. Kelly did not do that. He has always been my musical hero, and he will continue to be. This was an outstanding book, and I'm so glad I got to read it. If you love memoirs, trust me, you will not be disappointed with this one. I wish R. Kelly all the continued success he deserves, and I'm truly his biggest fan! Well Done!
