Synopsis

Growing up in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighbourhood, Alicia Keys has drawn on the area’s eclectic cultural mix to produce her own fiery brand of songs. No other artist blends the traditional and modern diversity of New York culture as skilfully as she to produce such an enthralling collection of urbane hits, all garnished by her virtuoso piano-playing and luxuriant, powerful voice which has made her a superstar. She has sold over 35 million albums and 30 million singles worldwide. Considered a pop icon, Billboard magazine named her the top R&B artist of the 2000s decade and placed her number 10 on their list of Top 50 R&B/Hip-Hop Artists of the Past 25 Years. Time named her in their 100 list of most influential people in 2005 and 2017, while VH1 included her on their 100 Greatest Artists of All Time list.
