Amanda Berry steps out on public stage at Nelly concert

Over the weekend,  27 year-old Amanda Berry - who was held captive in Cleveland for a decade - stepped out into the public spotlight as she joined rapper Nelly on stage during a concert.


"I know your strong after everything you've been through. Shoutout to Amanda Berry for fighting like that. Want to make sure we get that in. That's how you tell the pulse of the city by the people that live there. Appreciate it," Nelly said.

Berry appeared with a friend and while she didn't speak, she smiled and danced as Nelly performed at the annual Roverfest.

Outfront: Nelly, in his first interview since the concert. He has a new album called "Mo," which is coming out in September.
