Video: R. Kelly Covers Sam Cooke on ‘Jools Holland’

R. Kelly continued his U.K. promo tour with a stop at BBC’s “Later… with Jools Holland,” where he performed “Number One Hit,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” and sat down on piano with Jools for a cover of Sam Cooke’s “Bring It on Home to Me.”

Love Letter is designed to pretty much help to bring the world together. [There’s] a lot going on on our Earth today, but I wanted to do it through the Sam Cooke era and the Stevie Wonder, finger-snappin’, back-in-the-days era, because that music was really powerful,” explained Kellz, peering out from behind shades.

Watch him bring his soulful stylings across the pond.
