About Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys is one of the most successful R&B artists of all time. Her distinctive soulful vocal style and tremendous skill as a pianist have brought her monumental accolades not only in America, but also in the UK, Ireland and the rest of the world.
Born in 1981, she began playing piano at the age of seven and by 11 was writing her own songs. Aged just 20, she catapulted on to the international music scene, where she has been a firm fixture ever since.
Alicia's first studio album, Songs in A Minor, was released in June 2001, debuting at the top of the American billboard charts. Lead single, Fallin', topped the Billboard charts for six weeks, with subsequent single, A Woman's Worth, making it to the number three spot.
Alicia's second hotly anticipated studio album, the Diary of Alicia Keys, was certified quadruple platinum. This was followed in 2005 by her outstanding Unplugged album, which not only reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts but sold almost 200,000 in its first week alone. A third studio album followed in 2007, with her fourth studio album, The Element of Freedom, giving Alicia her first UK No. 1 album in 2009. The release of Girl on Fire in 2012 and Here in 2016 gave her two more chart-topping albums.
Most recently Alicia released Underdog, the latest single from the forthcoming new album entitled ALICIA.
Alicia has performed with many outstanding artists, including Usher, Cristina Aguilera, Lenny Kravitz, Jack White and Jay-Z.
She's also the proud recipient of 15 Grammy Awards and after a much heralded performance last year, she is set to host the ceremony for a second time at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on 26 January 2020.
Alicia last toured the UK in 2013, with a sold-out run that included two shows at The O2, London. She's recently confirmed details of a brand new world tour, stopping at three UK arenas.
