R Kelly Erykah Badu

Erykah Badu took a moment during her concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago to say she’s “puttin’ up a prayer right now” for R. Kelly.

“I hope he sees the light of day if he’s done all those things that we’ve seen on TV and heard those ladies talk about,” she said in the below video. “I hope he sees the light of day and comes forward.” She received a mixed reaction from the audience; both cheers and boos can be heard from the crowd.

“But y’all say ‘fuck it!’ See, that’s not love. That’s not unconditional. But what if one of the people that was assaulted by R. Kelly grows up to be an offender, we gonna crucify them? I mean how do we do this? Just something to think about.”

Record labels Sony and RCA have dropped singer R. Kelly, real name Robert Kelly, after weeks of pressure following a documentary called “Surviving R. Kelly,” according to Billboard Magazine.

The six-part documentary series, which aired on Lifetime, featured those who accused the singer of sexual abuse as well as friends of the pop star.

After the series aired, singers who collaborated with R. Kelly apologized, including Lady Gaga and Chance the Rapper. Protesters also marched outside of the Sony building in Manhattan earlier this week.

Also on Friday, Kelly’s former manager turned himself into authorities for allegedly making threats against the family of a woman who is involved with the singer.

Henry James Mason, 52, surrendered on a warrant for felony terroristic threats to authorities in Atlanta.
