Kelly performed a medley of hits, including several from her Destiny’s Child days. I’d almost forgotten about “Cater to You,” until I saw the video below.
Without a doubt, Kelly has everything it takes to go to the next level musically. Now, if she can only find a label that’s willing to invest in her talent.
Earlier this week Kelly revealed she was a free agent, having left Universal Republic, her label of more than five years.
“I just needed something new and I’ve earned the right to make my own choices and decisions,” she told Huffington Post. “There were no hard feelings. I needed a fresh start and they wished me the best.”
Kelly says she’s back in the studio, on her own dime, and that she’s taking her time crafting her new project.
As for how she will release it to the public, Kelly says there are “offers on the table,” but that she isn’t ruling out going independent.
Here’s hoping she has better luck than the recent spate of artists who have went at it alone.
Anyway, check out a cool clip below of Kelly performing at Orlando Mardi Gras.
