Singer/songwriter and performer: Alicia Keys is a multi-faceted entertainer. She is best known for her multi talented musical talents, which can be seen on numerous occasions on both her own solo music and as a member of groups such as En Vogue, Little Kids, 5 Seconds of Summer and Boyz II Men. Her musical interests include piano, brass tubing, guitar, singing, composing and performing. She has also been able to collaborate with a wide range of artists, including pop artist Elton John, hip hop artist Kanye West, country singer Gretchen Wilson and supermodels Macy Gray, Christy Turlington, Jennifer Lopez and Kelley McPhee.
When it comes to music, Alicia Keys takes traditional forms such as classical piano and flamenco and twists them into innovative new realms using her own distinctive sound. A new recording, “Alicia Keys and the Great Show,” will be released in March by Motown Music Factory. The album promises to be another smash, following “Etta James: We All Love You,” which debuted at number five in the U.S. and number twelve in Europe. The new album features the singles “Blue Tonight” and “I’m a Believer.”
Alicia Keys has not held a press conference in over a decade, which speaks to the longevity of her fan base. Her fans never know who she will show up with next, but they have always remained loyal. In addition to her numerous singles “Etta James” and “I’m a Believer,” Keys will appear on the forthcoming album “ritzy Gorges,” from her supergroup with The Nastytones. “ritzy Gorges” will be the band’s first album since reuniting in 1998. No dates have yet been scheduled.

Another single from “ritzy Gorges,” “Give Me the Reason,” was released just days before Alicia Keys performed live for the first time. The single, produced by The Fader, has taken the Hot Singles chart by storm. It is projected to top the Hot 100 this weekend. This will be the second week that “ritzy Gorges” has reached number one, following the massive success of “Hannah Montana Live.” This is just part of an incredible week for “ritzy Gorges,” which saw it debuts at number two on the charts.
Finally, the cover art for “ritzy Gorges” features another all-star group, this time featuring The Nastytones. This is the second single from the second album that has gone gold, following its debut on the chart last week. This group also features David Bowie, who appears on the first track. This is another high profile artist who has yet to make a joint venture with another artist.
In many ways, Alicia Keys is sort of like the modern day equivalent to the Beatles. She has been nominated for Grammys in both the singles and albums categories and has won multiple awards including Album of the Year. In light of these achievements, it is little wonder that the public has taken so much interest in her. If she can maintain the same interest in her fan base over the course of several more albums, then her position in history will only continue to improve. It is interesting to follow the career of such a talented artist, as she has established herself as one of the most exciting young musical talents.
