The 2010 World Cup has officially kicked off, with the opening ceremony and first match between the hosts South Africa, and Mexico.
But before the first pass was made and shot taken, a festival was held with hundreds of artists and singers leading the celebration. And R Kelly sang this song, Sign Of A Victory, which is the official anthem of South Africa 2010.
I personally think Sign Of A Victory is a little dull. The song is only lifted out of the ordinary by the Soweto Spiritual Singers, without whom this would be a bad attempt at an uplifting R&B anthem.
I also hate to say it but it’s no I Believe I Can Fly, the song which made R Kelly famous, and which has been played to death at every sporting occasion since it was released.
