“The scars of history make certain that we are not interested in persecuting anyone without just cause,” reads the letter in part. “With that said, we demand appropriate investigations and inquiries into the allegations of R. Kelly’s abuse made by women of color and their families for over two decades now.”
The WOC specifically directs its demand to RCA, Kelly’s label, as well as four other entities with current business ties to Kelly: Spotify, Apple Music, Ticketmaster and Greensboro Coliseum Complex. The latter two organizations are involved with Kelly’s upcoming May 11 show in Greensboro, North Carolina, one of the stops on the singer’s Memory Lane tour that began last November.
