R. Kelly

R. Kelly’s recent health scare almost sends the organizers of Reggae Sumfest in panic mode, however, the singer’s camp has moved to calm those concerns.

Robert Russell, Chairman of Summerfest Productions, says R. Kelly’s publicist has confirmed that the singer will be in Jamaica later this month for Reggae Sumfest.

“He is definitely coming. I have been in touch with them (R Kelly’s publicists) and they say he is coming, and is really looking forward to performing here,” Russell told the Observer.

R. Kelly missed out on some promotional run last week in New York after he started feeling ill.

But Russell says he was “just having a bout of laryngitis” last week.

“It was really nothing serious. He has now decided to rest for a few days as he gets ready to come to Jamaica…he wants to make sure that he is in good shape when he comes,” Russell disclosed.

R. Kelly is the headlining act for International Night 2 on July 21st. R&B sensation Trey Songz headlines International Night 1.
