    Just one day after her captor was sentenced to life in prison without parole, Cleveland kidnapping victim Amanda Berry made a triumphant first public appearance at an all-day concert in Ohio. Introduced by rapper Nelly, Berry walked on stage to loud cheers of support. "She waved to the crowd, everyone went crazy cheering," said one concertgoer. Nelly serenaded a smiling Berry after telling the crowd he thought she had "lots to catch up on." It was Berry's frantic call to 911 in May that led police to Ariel Castro's home, where she and two other women had been held captive for nearly a decade.
