Rapper Nelly was in Cleveland, Ohio, on Saturday night, July 27th, to headline the Roverfest 2013. The star made the event a very special night when he brought out kidnap victim, Amanda Berry, and her family. It was Berry's first public appearance since she was rescued from the Cleveland area home she was held captive in for decade.
- Following an intro, Nelly brought Berry out for her first public appearance as he performed his hit, "Just A Dream." The rapper told the audience, "That's how you tell the pulse of a city by the people that live there . . . Since they up here right now, I want to make sure that we get a chance to thank you because I know it's a long time and I can't even imagine the type of strength and the type of courage that it took to keep it going."
- Berry was wearing sunglasses, jeans and a t-shirt.
- On Friday, July 26th, Ariel Castro, the man who held Berry and two other women captive since 2002, entered a guilty plea to 937 charges. He was sentenced to life in jail without the possibility of parole plus 1,000 years.
