New York – Singer, producer R Kelly, who will perform at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York on Sunday, July 1, 2012 at the “Groovin In The Park” concert is credited as the producer of the last song Whitney Houston ever recorded. The song titled ‘Celebrate,’ which Kelly also wrote, is a duet with Houston and former American Idol contestant Jordin Sparks. The up-tempo song will be featured on the soundtrack to their upcoming film, ‘Sparkle’ that will hit theaters August 17. Houston’s role in the movie was her big screen comeback after a 15-year hiatus from acting in movies like ‘The Bodyguard’ and ‘The Preacher’s Wife.’
Regarded as the King of R&B by his fans, Kelly was in 2011 named the most successful R&B artist of the last 25 years by Billboard Magazine. He is known for delivering spiritual, inspirational and extremely sexual songs. He made his mark with smash hits like ‘I Believe I Can Fly,’ ‘World’s Greatest’ for the 1996 summer Olympics in Atlanta; and a duet (I’m Your Angel) with French-Canadian pop diva Celine which catapulted him to international stardom. He will be joined on stage in New York by R&B vocal group Boyz 11 Men, Beres Hammond and Jimmy Cliff.
Tickets for the concert are on sale at www.groovininthepark.com.
