Alicia Keys showcases voice, piano prowess

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Eleven-time Grammy award winner Alicia Keys commanded the stage like a veteran soul diva, belting hit after hit to a sold-out crowd at the Santa Barbara Bowl.

The R&B singer took audience members through the evolution of love through her nearly two-hour set Friday, from the excitement and innocence of a crush to a crushing heartache, then introspection and realization of the “Superwoman” within to the acceptance of newfound unconditional love with hits like “No One.”

Keys took the audience to Spanish Harlem, as she and her seven-piece band performed “Karma” from her sophomore album “Diary of Alicia Keys” with salsa-driven beats that spurred many in the audience to dance in the aisles.

Keys was simply stunning at AVA

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Alicia Keys shimmered under the stage lights at Casino del Sol’s AVA Sunday night.

The butterfly imprint on her charcoal black shirt sparkled with silver sequins. So did her block heels, her drape earrings and the suspenders holding up her skin-tight pants.

The extra flash looked fetching on the 27-year-old New York native but was completely unnecessary.

Keys’ vocals are unparalleled, her songs have won multiple Grammy awards, and she looked absolutely stunning Sunday, with her hair straightened and pulled back into a ponytail. She didn’t need to wear an elaborate ensemble in order to shine.

“I’ve met a lot of really good people today already,” the young singer said with seeming sincerity to the packed venue at the beginning of her show. “I feel we are in the right spot tonight.”

Keys spent the rest of her two-hour set dividing her time between a grand piano on a rotating platform center stage and strutting back and forth, belting out hit after hit, accompanied by a 10-piece band that included sax and trumpet players, a drummer and three backup vocalists.

Many of the evening’s melodies came from her latest release, “As I Am,” including “Teenage Love Affair,” the defiant show opener “Go Ahead” and the encore megahit, “No One.

School Daze Sequel?????

Moviemaker Spike Lee’s plans of turning Kanye West into a film star have hit a snag - no one wants to fund the film.

The director has penned what he thinks is “a very good script” for the sequel of his 1988 movie School Daze - and he wants West to star in the film with Alicia Keys.

But no one likes the idea.

He says, “The film takes place at the same college but 25 years later, but the powers that be didn’t want to tell that story. It was gonna have Kanye in it and Alicia Keys.”

The original School Daze starred Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito and Tisha Campbell-Martin. We need to see our Girl in more movies please. Pls drop your comments and dont forget to visit out forum by clicking here

Alicia Keys gets dirty

Friday, September 26th, 2008

BACKSTAGE at any concert is always a high-pressure environment.

At Alicia Keys’ performance at Nimes, in the south of France, a whole world of catering, crew and costumes intersect with the clock ticking down to stage time.

In a not-so-glamorous portable container, Keys is in glamour mode.

Her make-up artist has just left and Keys is finishing the job herself.

“I do my own make-up at festivals,” Keys admits, juggling eyeliner. “You’d be surprised how much this all costs.”

Her As I Am world tour is the biggest live production she has undertaken – in arenas and at festivals including Australia’s A Day On The Green winery circuit.

It is a touring luxury you can indulge when you’re an artist who still sells copious quantities of albums; As I Am debuted at No.1 in the US with nearly 750,000 first-week sales.

The Nimes show is stripped down by her standards, but still includes a revolving piano and a huge band who bring Keys’ three hit albums to life.

With Keys, a musician who happens to be a pop star, there’s plenty of freedom – her Prince cover How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore runs for nearly 20 minutes with each band member getting the obligatory introduction and solo.

Success has seen her move from Prince fan to Prince friend.

Movies Online Interview

Friday, September 26th, 2008

 Movie Poster SLOB

MoviesOnline had the pleasure of sitting down with Alicia Keys at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about her new movie, “The Secret Life of Bees,” written for the screen and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood based upon the award-winning novel by Sue Monk Kidd. The film also stars Queen Latifah, Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Hudson, and Sophie Okonedo, a powerhouse ensemble of women from the world of music and film.“The Secret Life of Bees” is the touching story about the need for love, sisterhood and redemption that explores the undeniable desire for a sense of belonging and the often daunting journeys that we must navigate to achieve it. Set in South Carolina, the home of the intelligent and independent honeymaking Boatwright sisters (Latifah, Keys and Okonedo) is suddenly thrust into upheaval with the arrival of fourteen-year-old Lily Owens (Fanning) and her caretaker Rosaleen (Hudson). Surrounded by the unexpected comforts, grace and deep rooted spirituality Lily encounters in the Boatwright home, she soon forms a maternal bond with each of these women whose unique and special gifts help reconcile the loss of her mother. Through the strength and female empowerment that embodies the Boatwright sisters, Lily ultimately comes to the realization that sometimes you must leave home in order to find it.

ALICIA KEYS: Good afternoon!

Another Way To Die | James Bond Theme Song

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Alicia Keys and White Stripes frontman Jack White have recorded a duet together called “Another Way to Die” for the next Bond film Quantum of Solace, which is due for release 29 October.

White has said he had been wanting to collaborate with the award-winning R&B star for “a couple of years”. White also said: “Alicia put some electric energy into her breath that cemented itself into the magnetic tape. Very inspiring to watch.

He said the the collaboration “gave me a new voice, and I wasn’t myself any more”. “I drummed for her voice and she mimicked the guitar tones, then we joined our voices and screamed and moaned about these characters in the film and their isolation, having no-one to trust, not even themselves. Maybe we became them for a few minutes.”

White has said to be disappointed that an instrumental version of Another Way To Die, from new Bond film Quantum of Solace, is featured in a 007-themed advert for the Coke Zero drink. As they created the sony together for the film and no Coca Cola.
