Recording artist R. Kelly caused a huge commotion back in April when he refused to take the stage at the last minute, but 3 On Your Side is helping to get refunds one fan at a time like Javier Hernandez.

"I really appreciate you guys stepping in and doing what you did because it got me my money," Hernandez said.

Hernandez is breathing a little sigh of relief knowing he has much of his money back in his hands. 3 On Your Side helped get that refund by setting Hernandez up with a concert promoter named Aubrey Morris.

The two men agreed to meet at a Valley restaurant where the refund was made.

"It was in cash and it was $480," Hernandez said.

The refund stems from an R. Kelly concert that never happened. The R&B recording artist was supposed to perform at the event in Tolleson, but at the last minute, the singer refused to take the stage and that sent fans into a frenzy

Hernandez spent nearly $700 for tickets to the concert. Since R. Kelly never performed, Hernandez asked 3 On Your Side to help get his money back. 

3 On Your Side introduced Hernandez to Morris, the concert promoter. 

In our previous report, Morris told 3 On Your Side that he felt terrible that R. Kelly refused to perform and was doing everything he could to refund ticket money back to fans like Hernandez. He didn't want to speak to 3 On Your Side on camera but agreed to expedite the refund by meeting with Hernandez and returning $480. 

It's not the entire amount, but Hernandez said he's glad to get anything back. 

"This is big time, big help because prior to that I was at a stalemate. I could not get a hold of anybody. I could not do anything that would help me in my behalf. So I really appreciate you guys stepping in and doing what you did because it got me my money," Hernandez said.

The concert promoter said he is only able to refund people 75 percent of their money because he's also taken a financial hit. He said people are also getting their money back by disputing the ticket charges with their credit card company.

Partial refunds are being made to those who submitted requests before the May 9 deadline. For more information visit, visit soulfestaz.com.
