CLEVELAND  – Amanda Berry was sighted on stage with rapper Nelly Saturday at Roverfest in Voinovich Park in downtown Cleveland, just one day after her capturer Ariel Castro plead guilty to 937 charges.

Concert goer Lisa Albertini tells NewsChannel5, “When Rover introduced them he made a comment about how she (Amanda Berry) has a lot of partying and catching up to do.”

Albertini goes on to say that St. Louis rapper Nelly came on the stage and introduced Berry. Berry then stayed towards the back of the stage the whole time with Nelly then at the end of his set, Nelly called Berry up and he sang a song for her.”

Berry, the woman in the sunglasses, was among hundreds at RoverFest 2013. The acts included Nelly, The Wailers, 10 Years, Jim Florentine and Miss Morning Glory Calendar Search.

This is the first time that pictures have emerged of Berry out in public at an event, since her, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight escaped the Seymour Avenue home of Ariel Castro. On Friday, Castro accepted plea deal which would put him in prison for the rest of his life. Castro is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.
