R. Kelly hosts social media contest for opening act

- Do you have talent? If so, R. Kelly wants you to be his opening act for his upcoming performance at FOX Theatre Atlanta.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer is hosting a social media contest in search of talent for his “12 Nights of Christmas” performance on December 27.

Anyone interested is asked to upload a video, where they first announce that they want to open for R. Kelly and then sing 30 seconds of a song of their choice, to social media. Contestants must tag the clip with the hashtag #KellzOpeningMic.  

R. Kelly and celebrity judges Frank Gatson Jr. and June’s Diary will review the entries and select finalists, who will compete in a final audition at the Fox Theatre Atlanta.

The winner will open up for Kelly at his December 27 performance.
