FULTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

R. Kelly hit the stage at Wolf Creek Amphitheater in Fulton County Friday night despite calls to cancel it.

The call to cancel Friday's concert was because of allegations that the R&B singer has a "cult of women" at his John Creek home staying against their will.

Although Kelly has denied those claims, protesters did not back down and they say he should not have been allowed to perform at a publicly owned facility. Protesters outside the concert showed their commitment by holding up signs with messages like "Mute R Kelly" and "Black Girls Matter".

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners sent a letter requesting Live Nation cancel the concert but the show went on as scheduled.

Meanwhile, R. Kelly fans were glad the show wasn't canceled.

"You have a right, if you want to support him you can do that if you don't then you can choose not to," said one fan who didn't want to be identified.

Protesters with the "Mute R. Kelly" campaign continue to boycott his music, demanding Sony drop him from their label.
