I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat. I will open my heart and reveal the good in my life as well as all the drama. I want to tell it like it is,” said R. Kelly.
Kelly wrote the memoir with acclaimed celebrity author David Ritz. The book has been described as “Part memoir, part keepsake; “Soulacoaster” unlocks the door to R. Kelly’s story as only he can tell it, promising his fans an intimate and unforgettable ride.”
“Soulacaoster: The Diary of Me” is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com. The memoir will officially be released in November 2011.
