*Singer R. Kelly is hoping that his new World Cup anthem, “Sign of a Victory,” can inspire people in the same way as his soaring 1996 anthem “I Believe I Can Fly.”
In an interview Wednesday with the Associated Press, Kelly said the lyrics carry a message of hope and triumph.
“It’s definitely no doubt a humanity song, and I’m hoping that everybody feels the same way when they hear it,” he said. “(I’m) hoping they can be as touched by it as I was when I heard it in my head.”
The Soweto Spiritual Singers are also featured on the song, which has been declared the official anthem for the World Cup. Listen below.
