Punters with R Kelly tattoos had turned up for the occasion, and have even brought the star flowers.
As well as this, a number of diehards approached the singer for selfies.
Earlier this month, court documents suggested that R Kelly is going through severe financial difficulties as he only has $625 (£478) in his bank account.
The files, obtained by The Blast, also show that a different bank account owned by Kelly is overdrawn by $13 (£9.91).
The father-of-three is currently on bail and has had to pay out thousands for a series of legal battles in recent months.
He plead not guilty to all the charges and his bail was set at $1million (£762,500). Kelly denies all the charges made against him.
Kelly has recently thrown himself into the world of club appearances including one in Springfield, Illinois, which is said to be paying him a sum of $22,000 (£16,775).
Before his 45-second performance, the Ignition singer took to Instagram to plead with the press to ‘take it easy’ on him.
Talking into the camera, he said: ‘This your boy Kells, I got an event to do tonight in Springfield, Illinois so I want the media to take it easy on me, man. This is how I got to paid right now.
‘So I got to go do this event, it’s a party. So when you see me in the club with a couple of drinks in my hand and chilling, please, take it easy. Appreciate it y’all, thanks.’
