On Wednesday evening, approximately 40 men and women gathered on the first floor of The Montrose Center to meet and discuss progress on the "Cancel R. Kelly" campaign, which was launched in response to the R&B singer's booking at this year's Free Press Summer Fest.
As of now, the controversial Chicago-based singer is staying put in the FSPF lineup.
"We spent about four hours on the phone with Omar Afra the day the line-up was announced," explained Muna Javaid, an affiliate with Girls Rock Camp Houston -- a nonprofit organization that hosts a weeklong rock band camp every summer for Houston-area girls.
Since the announcement for the seventh installment of the annual music festival, feedback has bombarded social media both in support and protest of the controversial singer. But none have been more vocal than the men and women of GRCH, who have banded together to begin the "Cancel R Kelly at FPSF 2015" campaign. And for good reason.
