See And Listen To R. Kelly's 38-Song 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival SetlistBy Eric Sundermann
Last night, R. Kelly headlined the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival, and it was about as close to a religious experience as a bunch of kids who grew up watching Space Jam over and over again could have. For real. Dude played 38 songs (or at least did verses from 38 songs), and during "I Believe I Can Fly," he even released thousands upon thousands of dove-shaped balloons. His shirt was also made of diamonds.
A friend of mine snagged the setlist, so in case you weren't there, you can experience it in full. Not everything was on Spotify, so we've compiled it the best we can—and even included a smooth jazz cover of "Sex In The Kitchen."
Eric Sundermann is still crying after seeing R. Kelly. He's on Twitter — @ericsundy
