Organizers eventually sent the show’s host – Faith Daniels – out, but the crowd unceremoniously turned on her as if R. Kelly’s delay was of her doing. Ever the professional, Daniels was not shaken by the boo’s from the crowd and continued to maintain a calm, bubbly demeanor. Many felt it was a mistake to send her out there instead of the production company, Santangelo Group, to address the concert goers personally.
However, no explanation was ever given as to why Kelly was late getting on stage and even when he finally arrived to sing at about 1 a.m., still not even an apology was given to the crowd. Fans took to social media in outrage.
