Alicia Keys’s musical career started at a very young age. With only 12 years old Alicia joined the Professional Performing Arts School, where she received music, dance and theatre classes.
The experience of growing up in a multicultural neighborhood of Manhattan had a deep influence on her art, and also living in a complicated environment prepared her for the music industry. Very soon Alicia Keys was discovered by the well-known producer Clive David, who had already noticed Whitney Houston’s talent years before.
Alicia Keys has sold over thirty million albums worldwide and has won numerous awards, including eleven Grammy Awards, seventeen Billboard Music Awards, and three American Music Awards.
Alicia Keys’ debut album Songs in A Minor(2001) was a worldwide success, selling over eleven million copies, went platinum five times over and received five Grammy Awards in 2002
Her second studio album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, was released in 2003 and quickly became another great success worldwide selling about nine million copies and garnered Keys four Grammy Awards in 2005.
After the successful Unplugged release in 2005, Keys returned to the music scene with her third studio album, As I Am (2007) which has sold nearly six million copies and established her as one of the best-selling artists of the decade.
Her sixth studio album, Here (2016) soon became her seventh chart topper.
The release of Show me Loveand Time Machine (september,2019) was preceded by Underdog in novembre, both singles from her new album Alicia and the announcement of her upcoming World Tour.
