    Default Kellz; multi-instrumentalist

    Which instruments are Kellz able to play? Keys, of course. I've seen him play bass guitar, competently, in a YouTube clip. Does he play standard guitar? Any other?

    One more thing I just came to think of: what is Kellz vocal range? I'm guessing tenor, but I'm not completely sure. I found out the other day that Jaheim is bass!

    Yea, he played the acoustic guitar at the Billboard awards while performing a song for Katrina.

    I'm not sure what's R.'s vocal range, I've always wonder this myself. His vocal type is most likely a tenor. His range - I'm guessing 3.5 or 4.

    I'm not sure about what instruments he plays though. In his albums it used to say "all instuments played by R. Kelly" but that stopped. I think he played the guitar in Gotham City

    his vocal range is...

    F2 In "It's Your Birthday" (not too sure about this one though) - C5 in "I Decided"
    Highest falsetto/head voice is G#5 in "You Bring Me Joy"

    3 octaves and 3 notes

    Wow, thanks for the info. How did you ascertain this so accurately? 3,3 seems exactly right.

    I play guitar and a little piano so that helped with the notes. I was bored one day so i sadly listened to all his music to find out his range

    That's great! I've always wondered, how do you know which tone is 2-3-4-5? That's above and and below middle C, right? Which one is middle C on guitar? I think Tenor is correct because, according to Wikipedia, C5 is also known as the Tenor C (the highest note required in the standard Tenor repertoire).
