World Cup 2010: R. Kelly's anthem 'Sign of a Victory' lyrics
R. Kelly's song, "Sign of a Victory," sung by the Soweto Spiritual Choir, at the opening ceremony of the World Cup 2010, moved the entire world with uplifting lyrics about global warming.
He has said publicly: "I wanted 'Sign of a Victory' to be written and custom-made for the soccer World Cup. But I wanted to go beyond and spread it beyond that world and touch on some of the issues in the world that make us all one. And I thought if I touch on an issue like global warming, which is an issue we're all dealing with, I thought that musically, lyrically it could make us one."
