R. Kelly rises to the occasion

Rkelly Say what you want about that R. Kelly, but the man can sing, and he's using those pipes to record a song to benefit the students affected by the tragic shootings on Virginia Tech's campus on April 16. Rise Up will be available digitally May 15, the AP writes, and 100 percent of the net proceeds from its sale will go to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, according to Jive Records, Kelly's record label. The 40-year-old singer said he wrote the song after watching the events on TV while he was on tour. [Photo: AP]
