Mom Helped Pick Stage Name, Says Alicia    ·    November 12th, 2007

If it weren’t for her mother, Alicia Keys might have a radically different image. Keys, who has a new album titled “As I Am,” says that when she was trying to choose a professional name she went through a dictionary and stopped on the word “wild.”

She tells Newsweek in the magazine’s Nov. 19 issue that she asked her mother how Alicia Wild sounded to her.

“She said “It sounds like you’re a stripper,’” Keys said.

After that, she decided to use Keys.

“It’s like the piano keys. And it can open so many doors,” said the singer born Alicia Augello-Cook.

    Hi Alicia.

    You have a good point. The name Keys really does open a lot of doors for sure. I really enjoy your music. As a matter of fact, I heard you today on Rigis and it all sounded nice. Have a good one,
