Friday, October 24th, 2008

Alicia’s first concert in Prague took place on 14th October 2008. Pikant magazin wrote about it: “… an impressive music programme accompanied by magnificent show. Literary breath-taking were her songs when she played the grand piano during her singing. She proved how much tameless energy she has. “
About the video: Alicia Keys going to sing at HC Sparta Arena, going to the stage, the crowds are going mad up there, Alicia comes to the stage wearing (prolly artificial) fur coat… “ I’m in Prague, feeling good … also, we are at some fricking hockey ring!” She also learned a sentence in Czech. What sentence? Find out in the video….

- Once upon a time in a small South Carolina town, there lived a warmhearted beekeeper who made honey so sweet and delectable that people came from all around to stock up. Her name was August, and her honey-making sisters were May and June. “The Secret Life of Bees” doesn’t actually begin this way, but it might as well. Suffused with a golden glow, the movie looks and sounds like a fairy tale. It stays faithful to Sue Monk Kidd’s popular novel in which the lives of a black family and a white one (not to mention a swarm of bees) play out against the backdrop of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

Secret Life of Bees Opens Tomorrow!!!

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

There are over a hundred reviews of Alicia’s new movie that i can no longer keep up. All of the reviews i’ve read are giving Alicia keys thumps up for her acting and only one has picked out a flaw in her acting saying ‘ she couldnt pull off the southern dialect well, yet very impressive’. Generally Alicia has been applaude and the movie is great, it even has Oscar buzz to it. It hit theatres tomorrow so dont fail to go see it. For those who know little about Alicia’s role ‘June’ i’ll tell you, She is a strong independent single woman living with her 2 sisters May and August in the 1960s. She is a music teacher who play cello, she was into getting blacks to vote in the civil rights era. She was a little uncomfortable with the runaway that they harboured ‘Lily’ but later in the movie her love flowed. She has a boyfriend who proposes to her everytime even though she turns him down (see the movie to find out why :-) ). I have read the script and i dont want to post spoilers here because i want everyone to enjoy the movie. So see you in the Cinemas.

Bermuda Music Festival 2008: Alicia Keys Shimmers & Shines.

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Alicia at Bermuda Music FestivalWhen Alicia Keys performed her hit song, ‘You Don’t Know My Name,’ last night at the closing of the “2008 Bermuda Music Festival,” it sounded as if the heavens opened up and the angels were singing.

I had no idea that the title of the song would be a double entendre for how the media corps, who were invited to cover the festival, were treated. But that comes later in this piece.

Keys’ beautiful singing was a welcomed reprieve for a four-day event that featured some of the biggest acts in music (namely Beyonce Knowles and UB40), who had to play second fiddle to torrential rainstorms on the idyllic Atlantic Ocean island.

Luckily for the ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ singer, the sky was in sync with her smooth and harmonious song styling. read more at www.blackvoices.com
