Posted: Updated:

Monroe, La (KNOE 8 News)- R. Kelly sang a couple of songs and talked to a few fans before leaving the Monroe Civic Center after he performed for five minutes. That's what left a lot of people wondering if that was the real R. Kelly or not. Photographer Cedric Barnes says, that it was.

"Yes it was R. Kelly at the Monroe Civic Center. I not only took close ups with him, I filmed him live on stage he performed three songs. He also stayed on the stage and conversed with the people on the stage," said Barnes.

The crowd still confused about whether the event was a concert or a party, felt as though they deserved more. Some people paid as much as 150 dollars for tickets to the event. Randy Riley, helped promote the event spoke to KNOE.

"The prices is what got people a lot. If it would have been a little less than that, then they probably would have understood, but the prices had people like hey we suppose to get more than that. We travel a long way for more than seven, eight minutes of R. Kelly."
