Ohio Kidnap Victim
Amanda Berry Gets On
Stage with Nelly
No one saw that guest star coming!
While rapper Nelly was performing in Cleveland, Ohio, he brought a very special guest star up on stage with him. But it wasn't a fellow musician coming out for a duet - it was Amanda Berry, one of the three women who had been kidnapped and held in the basement for ten years in a highly-publicized case.
Amanda's captor, Ariel Castro, was sentenced the day before to life in prison with no chance of parole.
Although Amanda didn't talk when she was introduced, she came out, waved at the crowd, and smiled. "Everyone went crazy cheering," an audience member told Cleveland.com. Amanda and the other two women she was held with, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, have released statements to the press but not done any formal interviews since they were freed from captivity in May.
