    Default pick 12 songs for the upcoming tour that R hardly has touched live

    now we all know that R has a whole Bunch of Jams,but we know there are 12 set songs that he will probably always do. now suppose Kellz allowed you personally to pick 12 tracks that he has hardly done over the years or maybe hasn't done live. what 12 would you pick and why?

    my 12 for the tour off the top of my dome would be

    "Vibe" and bring the New Jack Swing with a Modern up dated sound 1)

    "thank God it's friday" Smoothed out live with a Steppers Groove 2)

    Religious Love Acoustic style with african Hand drums. 3)

    i don't mean it solo on the Piano with backup vocals extended. 4)

    up and outta here with a full horn section and Brass Live. 5)

    how did you manage with a Organ Groove and Bass outfront live. 6)

    Medley of Heaven's Girl,You are not alone,Fourtunate,One More Chance 7)

    Lovestreet Broadway style with Brass and show dancers. 8)

    Street Dreams Re Mix Live and if Nas was willing to take the stage that would be cool but if not a replacement would be cool as well. 9)

    Do Your Thing Updated with the Wailers and Damion Marley on Vocals. Live 10)

    I'm your angel Live with either Kellz and Celin Dion or Christina Agullaria with Orchestra 11)

    Steppers National Anthem and Steppers New Years Eve Theme Jam to end the SHow. when Kellz did the Steppers theme to the National Anthem I thought that was very creative and tight and would be a Helluva ending to a show. 12)

    Nice! Very detailed. Thank God It's Friday would be GREAT live. So would I'm Your Angel, although getting Celine to do it with the R-ah would be tough. Still, great ideas!

    I don't mean it, forever, I'll never leave, havin a baby, the greatest show on earth, u saved me, prayer changes, leap of faith, religious love, the storm is over now, soldiers heart, put my t-shirt on
    if i could turn back the hands of time might be the song i'd like to hear him sing live the most. The songs i want to hear live are the songs that really show what a great voice he has.

    Does anyone want to hear him sing I Believe I Can Fly?

    ...despite his refusal to do it (I forgot why); I think it would be pretty awesome to hear the vocals.

    Ah well...............

    its like MJ not doing Thriller or Ray Charles not doing Georgia....etc

    i want it of course but what does that say about R's catelog if he can go without doing it? that is a artist that can go 2-3 hours without doing it non stop with other hits.

    Before going through specific songs, 2 things comes to my mind.

    (1) I'd love to hear full version of any songs. I understand he probably feels he should cater to fans who wants a little bit of everything for their tastes, but I don't like the idea of singing medley of many songs and singing back to back to back to back....He's done this quite often in different settings and some shows among them wasn't just for (hard-core) R.Kelly fans. Yeah, in that situation, it might be appealing for the crowd. But, at his own tour, I'd like to see him let his fans take time and get indulged in one song and another and another....and let himself do the same. It's about him and his fans, Hidden Content so there's no need to care about satisfying the general public who don't know or like his songs beside hits and singles.

    (2) I'd love to hear some songs that would sound nice when played a variaton on them at live shows. Artists change up the original songs esp.famous ones when they do them live. There are many reasons you can have why you love live performances and tour, but it's one big element to feel newness from oh-so-so-familiar tunes for me. I don't know which songs would fit here, tho. I can see maxxx seemed to think about this too.

    Touched A Dream---a almost-hidden classic off The Greatest Hits. Damn, you don't see many others put a classic, new tune to add to an already full collection of classics.

    Trade In My Life---only him with of course, a quoir or with Karen Clark-Sheard as a guest. Gopel fans would go crazy!

    It's Like Everyday

    Life

    I Don't Mean It

    How Did You Manage

    Fly

    either Stepping Into Heaven or If I Could Change The World---for finale

    Somethings Never Change

    12 Play

    Chocolate Factory---I think he, like many other artists, don't perform many personal tracks. Songs about an artist's deeply personal don't seem to get single-cutted many times as well.

    Issues(How I Feel)---I like Rockstar, but it's a single now and he'll surely do that a lot live from now on. So, among the rare choices, I'd def. go with this.

    Great topic Hidden Content and list Hidden Content maxxx. All 12 choices AND extra features are badd. If Kellz peep this, he'd feel tempted to borrow your ideas. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. I felt I got spoiled with the happy imagination.
