With catchy tunes and global hits like “Fallin'” and “No One,” Alicia Keys has become one of the most influential artists of the 21st century in around 20 years. A world star with a clear attitude and a strong voice. Hardly anyone is as versatile. A force to be reckoned with as a singer, she is also a brilliant musician and songwriter. Her music of soul, R&B and hip-hop has broken down stylistic boundaries and created anthems for eternity.
Alicia Keys – The biography of a fighter
Growing up in the tough New York neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, she was raised almost alone by her mother. At the age of five, she began ballet lessons and took piano lessons. The resulting skills she later shows impressively as a musician at her live concerts or various award shows. Again and again she plays from above lying on the piano or parallel on two pianos front and back.
Blessed with so much talent, it’s no wonder that after graduating from high school she decided against studying at the renowned Columbia University. Instead, she consistently pursues her path as a musician and does not shy away from parting ways with her first music label.
At the J Records label, she finally developed into the celebrated young artist who directly landed a world hit with “Fallin'” in 2001. As a live artist, she has thrilled millions of music fans around the world for over 20 years. Her performances are true vocal explosions and when she sits down at the piano, you don’t want to stop listening to this gifted artist.
Alicia Keys – The Great Hits
Alicia Keys launched her first global hit, “Fallin’,” with her debut album “Songs In A Minor” in 2001. This song immediately climbed to No. 1 in the American Billboard charts. 2007 follows with “No One” the second own number 1 hit. In addition, in 20 years, 4 more own top ten hits like “You Don’t Know My Name” or “If Ain’t Got You”.
In addition, Alicia Keys is also involved in two other number 1 hits. In 2004 she produced the duet “My Boo” with Usher, and in 2009 she collaborated with Jay-Z on “Empire State Of Mind,” a true hymn to her hometown of New York. With 40 worldwide singles and eight studio albums, Alicia Keys has become one of the most influential artists of the 21st century.
Alicia Keys – A collection of awards
For the single “Fallin'” and the debut album “Songs In A Minor,” Alicia Keys won five Grammys in 2002, including the coveted Song Of The Year award. In total, she wins 15 Grammys and numerous other awards. These include 5 MTV Video Music Awards and 3 World Music Awards. Her more than 30 million sold records receive countless platinum, gold and silver awards. For “Songs In Minor” alone, with its over 10 million copies sold, she goes seven times platinum.
Alicia Keys – A woman with attitude
In 2016, Alicia Keys made a statement against superficiality. She appears at the Video Music Awards completely without makeup and announces that she will continue to do without it in the future. She wants to send a signal to young women that they do not have to constantly expose themselves to an ideal of beauty and permanent evaluation.
She has also always declared war on structural racism. For example, she publishes strong video messages together with other women for her friend Tamika Mallory’s organization Until Freedom. She also addresses the issue in her songs, such as the song “Perfect Way To Die,” released in 2020.
