Alicia Keys has Audience in Raptures
December 7, 2013
Two of the biggest voices in RnB set Perth Arena ablaze as US singer-songwriter Alicia Keys kicked off the Australian leg of her Set the World on Fire Tour.
Supported by fellow Grammy Award-winner John Legend, Keys opened her set with a few powerful bars from Empire State of Mind before leading into catchy opener Karma.
Dressed simply and stylishly in a figure-hugging black sequined jumpsuit, the Keys stunned with her vocal ability during performances of her singles such as You Don't Know My Name, Tears Always Win, A Woman's Worth, Diary and Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready).
The Arena's big screens allowed the audience a close-up on the intricate work of her fingers, which glided across the piano keys, and her signature loud, bluesy notes of her Fallin'.
The reggae vibe of a mash-up of her song Limitedless, and Chaka Demus and Pliers' hit Murder She Wrote, had Keys up and moving as she was flanked by her dancers.
The passionate musician was at home on stage, clearly happy to be immersed in her lyrics and snippets of songs such as Unbreakable and Brand New Me showcased a raw, softer side of Keys' vocal abilities.
"I gotta tell you, I am crazy excited to be here with you tonight" she said, flashing a megawatt smile.
A moving rendition of If I Ain't Got You, from her second studio album The Diary of Alicia Keys, was followed by one of the evening's highlights as the crowd lit up the Arena with their mobile phones and sang along with Keys for No One.
Keys took to the drums during New Day & the beat lead into her performance of Girl on Fire.
Though the power of showmanship should never be underestimated, Keys gave a refreshing, no frills performance, which focused on the music.
It speaks volumes about an artist who can stand on stage, in this day and age, and command the attention of thousands using nothing but the power of her own voice or, similarly, bring an arena to a low hush with her fancy finger work on the piano. With such strong vocals, backed by a great live band, there was no need for bells and whistles or costume changes.
There was only one switch into a sparkly purple full-length gown for the encore, in which Keys returned for Empire State of Mind.

She performed at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on Monday. Visiting the country for the second time, Keys told entertainment columnist Ricky Lo in a phone interview last week that she has been looking forward to performing before her Filipino fans again.
"They had so much energy during the concert. They were so excited despite what had just happened. I was glad that we could inspire each other, that’s why I’m looking forward to going back there" she said, recalling her experience the first time she came over.
"Music has a way of lifting your spirit and that’s what I hope to do for the Filipino people" she said. Earlier this month, Keys tweeted her support and prayers for typhoon-hit Philippines and urged her followers to donate and help the country.

Keys in the Songs of Life as Alicia sets Dubai on Fire
November 17, 2013
Alicia Keys brought her Set the World on Fire tour to Dubai and proved that’s exactly what she’s doing. The show at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on Friday night was a showcase of the Grammy Award-winner’s musical prowess in every sense.
A statement white grand piano serving as the focal point of a minimalist set, Keys sang her way through an extensive catalogue of old and new hits from the past decade.
A full band, backing singers and four male dancers - along with Keys’s trademark thrills and improvisation – made for an unquestionable 100 per cent live performance.
Keys is all about the music and left the stage just once for less than five minutes to reapply her striking red lipstick, leaving her more than capable backing singers in charge. There were no set or costume changes for the entire 90-minute performance - just Keys, her piano, passion and music.
A packed amphitheatre roared as the lights went down and a single spotlight picked out Keys holding her signature pose: legs bent, one hand on hip, the other holding the microphone high above her face and head tilted back, two words - New York - amped an already-electric atmosphere another notch. A taste of Empire State of Mind flowed seamlessly into a techno-edged version of Karma and the show was officially on.

Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder and John Mayer rocked the stage at the Global Citizen Festival Saturday. They were among a host of stars who united at the event in New York City.

"Today is such a powerful day - symbolic of the way we can really do something to make the world closer to the way we want it. So many times it feels like we are stuck and don't have any control over the world. Poverty is an injustice against our Global family. It denies people the basic right to necessities like food, clean water, health care and education."
Several other stars walked the green carpet at Manhattan's Central Park to lend their support to the cause. Katie Holmes, Gerard Butler, Bono, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis were among those in attendance.
You can still watch Alicia's full performance on Global Citizen website. You might wanna hear her brand new song from 'The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete' movie soundtrack called "Better Me, Better You" (skip to 25mins). Lyrics can be found on AK.com.

Swizz Beatz explains how he and Alicia Keys ended up in wrong hamptons house
September 27, 2013
Alicia Keys & Swizz are the kind of couple anyone would be happy to have as houseguests.
During the summer of 2013, however, the twosome wandered into the wrong Hamptons home - uninvited - in the middle of the night! Swizz told E! News about how he and Alicia wound up in a strangers' house. Click here to watch the video.
"It was funny, though, man" the rapper said laughingly. "I mean, things happen…"
Fortunately, Swizz confirmed the homeowners were "cool" about the accidental intrusion. "We didn't see the owner," he said, "but whoever was in there - it was all cool."
Clearly and Alicia weren't too upset to see the humor in their late night mishap! When asked the secret to their 3-year-marriage, Swizz said simply - "Communication."
"Communication is the key to a lot of things," he added. "Friendships, relationships, business, and that's what we try to do is just keep the communication between each other very tight."

Alicia Keys Talks Inspiration, Family And Prayer With Origin Magazine
September 2, 2013
Maranda Pleasant: What inspires you?
Alicia Keys: Many things inspire me. First and foremost, my family, my husband and our son, Egypt. I find that the love we share fills me up and makes me see and appreciate life in a different way. I’m also inspired by many of my friends, colleagues and the extraordinary people I’ve been fortunate enough to meet along the way. Through my organization, Keep a Child Alive, I’ve met many young women who are HIV positive and courageously fighting the disease. Their determination to live a full life and see their children live in a better world is deeply inspiring to me. I’m inspired by artists and musicians. There are so many wonderful and talented people in the world. I love discovering new music, new writers, or new art.
MP: What are you passionate about?
AK: When I’m on stage, my interaction with the audience is something that really makes me come alive. It’s a feeling like no other. The energy of the crowd fuels something new inside. It reminds me to live in the moment. Moments are so fleeting; I want to hold on to the good ones. When I am truly present, I feel alive, and I want everyone around me to share that feeling so we can make the most of that moment together. I also feel alive in quiet moments with my son, riding our bikes or watching him line his trains up in a particular order, witnessing how his mind works, hearing him learn a new word. I’m alive in these special moments because I never knew a love like this.
MP: What is love to you?
AK: Unconditional and reciprocal. It’s accepting people for who they are and what they are, regardless. There is a love song on my newest album called “101.” It’s about a woman who loves a man even though everyone else thinks she’s crazy for doing so. He’s acted a certain way towards other women, but she sees something inside of him that’s deeper and truer and unconditional. Love is giving of yourself in a way that is free of fear.

Alicia Keys Takes Her Empowering Message About HIV and AIDS To Harlem
August 23, 2013
Native New Yorker and R&B star Alicia Keys teamed up with Rep. Charles Rangel for a conversation on AIDS in Harlem on Thursday.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that African-Americans make up half of all people living with the virus, with black women being the fastest-growing group of people being infected with HIV.
During the event, which took place at Harlem Hospital, the singer and other AIDS activists encouraged dialogue about the problem.
"We have the opportunity to have access to medication, we have the opportunity to really be able to have treatment, and we've advanced so far that perhaps that's one of the reasons why we're a bit complacent about it, because we're not seeing those drastic effects anymore, you know what I mean?" said Keys. "So we kind of think, 'Oh, we're cool over here, right? We're kind of good.' But we're not kind of good."
She said talking about it is important to arriving at an AIDS-free generation: “We don’t see people just dropping off like flies and dying. We don’t physically see someone becoming a skeleton and then not being able to live any longer and just dying. We saw that 30 years ago and so that was why there was such an outrage. It was like ‘I’m not going to just let people just die in front of me’” said Keys.
Keys and Rangel got tested, and they want others to do so. Click here to watch video and check out some photos from the event in the gallery.
