In part two of our sit down interview with singer Sparkle, she shares the ups and downs of the relationship with her niece and her parents, who have consistently stood beside and behind R. Kelly before and after the tape was released.

She also spoke about the backlash she’s received from people who questioned her release of the single “We Are Ready,” after the documentary aired. She shared that often times the community is harder on Black women than anyone else.

Lastly, Sparkle spoke about how she feels about celebrities speaking out now when many of them knew of R. Kelly’s alleged behavior for years.
