Alicia Augello Cook (born January 25, 1981), better known by her stage name Alicia Keys, is an American recording artist, musician and actress. She was raised in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan in New York by her single mother, where Keys made a television appearance on The Cosby Show at the age of four. She attended Professional Performing Arts School and graduated at 16. She later attended Columbia University before dropping out to pursue her music career.

Early life and career beginnings
Keys was born Alicia Augello Cook on January 25, 1981, in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan, in New York City, New York.[1][2] She is the daughter and only child of Irish-Italian mother Teresa Augello, a paralegal and part-time actress, and Jamaican father Craig Cook, a flight attendant.[3][4][5][6] She felt comfortable with her biracial heritage because she felt she was able to "relate to different cultures".[7][2] Her parents separated when she was two and she was subsequently raised by her mother during her formative years in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan.[8] In 1985, Keys made an

appearance on The Cosby Show at the age of four, where she and a group of girls played the parts of Rudy Huxtable’s sleepover guests in the episode "Slumber Party".[9][10] Throughout her childhood, Keys was sent to music and dance classes by her mother.[11] She began playing the piano when she was seven and learned classical music by composers such as Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin.[12] She enrolled in the Professional Performing Arts School at the age of 12, where she majored in choir and began writing songs at the age of 14.[4][13] She graduated in three years as valedictorian at the age of 16.[14] She was accepted to Columbia University and had a recording contract with Columbia Records; she attempted to manage both, but dropped out of college after four weeks to pursue her musical career.[14][15] Keys signed a demo deal with Jermaine Dupri and So So Def Recordings, where she appeared on the label’s Christmas album performing "The Little Drummer Girl". She also co-wrote and recorded a song entitled "Dah Dee Dah (Sexy Thing)", which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1997 blockbuster, Men in Black.[15] The song was Keys’ first professional recording; however, it was never released as a single and her record contract with Columbia ended after a dispute with the label. Keys called Clive Davis, who sensed a "special, unique" artist from her performance and signed her to Arista Records, which later disbanded.[1][2] Keys almost chose Wilde as her stage name until her manager suggested the name Keys after a dream he had. Keys felt that name represented her both as a performer and person.[16] Following Davis to his newly formed J Records label, she recorded the songs "Rock wit U" and "Rear View Mirror", which were featured on the soundtracks to the films Shaft (2000) and Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001), respectively.[17][18]

Songs in A Minor led Keys to win five awards at the 2002 Grammy Awards: Song of the Year, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, and Best R&B Song for "Fallin’", Best New Artist, and Best R&B Album; "Fallin’" was also nominated for Record of the Year.

The title derived from one of her poems, "Love and Chains" from the line: "I don’t mind drinking my tears for water."[39] She said the title is the foundation of her writing because "everything I have ever written has stemmed from my tears of joy, of pain, of sorrow, of depression, even of question".[40] The book sold over $500,000 and Keys made The New York Times bestseller list in 2005.[41][42] The following year, she won a second consecutive award for Best R&B Video at the MTV Video Music Awards for the video "Karma".[43] Keys performed "If I Ain’t Got You" and then joined Jamie Foxx and Quincy Jones in a rendition of "Georgia on My Mind", the Hoagy Carmichael song made famous by Ray Charles in 1960 at the 2005 Grammy Awards.[44] That evening, she won four

"Almost Everything Is Boinga Here".[56] That same year, Keys nearly suffered a breakdown. Her grandmother had died and her family was heavily dependent on her. She felt she needed to "escape" and went to Egypt for three weeks. She explained: "That trip was definitely the most crucial thing I’ve ever done for myself in my life to date. It was a very difficult time that I was dealing with, and it just came to the point where I really needed to—basically, I just needed to run away, honestly. And I needed to get as far away as possible."[57][58] Keys made her film debut in early 2007 in the crime film Smokin’ Aces, co-starring as an assassin named Georgia Sykes opposite Ben Affleck and Andy García. Keys received much praise from her co-stars in the film; Reynolds said that Keys was "so natural" and that she would "blow everybody away".[59][60] In the same year, Keys earned further praise for her second film, The Nanny Diaries, based on the 2002 novel of the same name, where she co-starred alongside Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans.[61] She also guest starred as herself in the "One Man Is an Island" episode of the drama series Cane.[62]

"No One" earned Keys the awards for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song at the 2008 Grammy Awards.[73] Keys opened the ceremony singing Frank Sinatra’s 1950s song "Learnin’ the Blues" as a "duet" with archival footage of Sinatra in video and "No One" with John Mayer later in the show.[74] Keys also won Best Female R&B Artist during the show.[75] She starred in "Fresh Takes", a commercial micro-series created by Dove Go Fresh, which premiered during The Hills on MTV from March to April 2008. The premiere celebrated the launch of new Dove Go Fresh.[76] She also signed a deal as spokesperson with Glacéau’s VitaminWater to endorse the product,[77] and was in an American Express commercial for the "Are you a Cardmember?" campaign.[78] Keys, along with The White Stripes’ guitarist and lead vocalist Jack White, recorded a theme song to Quantum of Solace, the first duet in Bond soundtrack history.[79] In 2008, Keys was ranked in at number 80 the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists.[80] She also starred in The Secret Life of Bees, a film adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd’s acclaimed 2003 bestseller novel of the same name alongside Jennifer Hudson and Queen Latifah, released in October 2008 via Fox Searchlight.[81] Her role earned her a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture at the NAACP Image Awards.[82] She also received three nominations at the 2009 Grammy Awards and won Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "Superwoman".[83] In an interview with Blender magazine, Keys allegedly said "’Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other, ’gangsta rap’ didn’t exist" and went on to say that it was created by "the government". The magazine also claimed she said that Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. were "essentially assassinated, their beefs stoked by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing".[13] Keys later wrote a statement clarifying the issues and saying her words were misinterpreted.[84] Later that year, Keys was criticized by anti-smoking campaigners after billboard posters for her forthcoming concerts in Indonesia featured a logo for the A Mild cigarette brand sponsored by tobacco firm Philip Morris. She apologized after discovering that the concert was sponsored by the firm and asked for "corrective actions". In

response, the company withdrew its sponsorship.[85]

2009–present: Upcoming projects
Keys and manager Jeff Robinson signed a film production deal to develop live-action and animated projects with Disney. Their first film will be a remake of the 1958 comedy Bell, Book and Candle and will star Keys as a witch who casts a love spell to lure a rival’s fiancé.[86] Keys and Robinson also formed a television production company called Big Pita.[87] Their first project will be a UPN television series inspired by Keys’ experiences as a biracial child growing up in New York.[87] Keys will be an executive producer of the series and has received a script commitment from the network.[88] Keys and Robinson will develop live-action and animated projects from their company, Big Pita and Little Pita, with Keys as producer, thespian, banner spearheading soundtrack and music supervision.[89] Keys is expected to play a 1940s biracial piano child prodigy, Philippa Schuyler, in an upcoming film entitled Compositions in Black and White. It is based on a 1995 biographical book of the same name by Kathryn Talalay.[90] "The challenge, in order to actually be able to play classical piano as a woman of mixed race, was by far more than I could ever imagine", Keys said, "That’s what intrigued me about that role." The biopic will tell the difficult tale of Schuyler’s controversial career, love-hate relationship with her mother, and the black community, her second career as a writer, and her eventual death in a helicopter accident. "Her story is very deep, even up to the point where the relationship between her and her mother gets very strained and she chooses to go to Europe and pass as a Spanish woman in order to be able to play, in order to be able to live a more normal life", Keys said, adding that she and Halle Berry hoped to start shooting in early 2008, but has not been filmed to date. "As of right now, we’re still in the first, second draft of the script", she said, "So a little bit of time—at least a year."[91] It has been reported that Keys will release her fourth studio album in late 2009. As part of the promotional drive for the album, she will be performing at the Cayman Island Jazz Festival on December 5, the final night of the

abilities limited.[22] Her lyrics have been called generic, clichéd and that her songs revolve around generalities.[22][96] Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune feels that she "[pokes] around for multi-format hits rather than trying to project any sort of artistic vision".[105] Gregory Stephen Tate of The Village Voice, on the other hand, compared Keys’ writing and production to 1970s music[106] while Jon Pareles of Blender magazine stated that the musical composition of her songs makes up for their lyrical weakness.[99] Joanna Hunkin of The New Zealand Herald reviewed one of Keys’ performances, where Kylie Minogue also attended. She described Minogue’s reaction to Keys’ performance, saying "it was obvious she was just as much of a fan as the 10,000 other people at Vector Arena". She went on to say that Minogue was "the original pop princess bowing down to the modern-day queen of soul".[107] Hunkin characterized Keys’ opening performance as a "headbanging, hip-gyrating performance" and her energy as "highoctane energy most bands save for their closing finale". At the end of her two-hour performance, fans "screamed, stomped and begged for a second encore".[107] Hillary Crosley and Mariel Concepcion of Billboard magazine noted that her shows are "extremely coordinated" with the audience’s attention span "consistently maintained". The show ended with a standing ovation and Keys "proved that a dynamic performance mixed with superior musicianship always wins".[108] Throughout her career, Keys has won numerous awards and is listed on the Recording Industry Association of America’s best-selling artists in the United States, with 14 million certified albums.[109] She has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and has established herself as one of the best-selling artists of her time.[9][110][111][106]

Musical style
Keys began playing classical music on the piano at the age of seven.[12] She majored in choir at the age of 12 and began writing songs at the age of 14.[13] Being an accomplished pianist, she incorporates piano on majority of her songs and often writes about love, heartbreak and female empowerment.[2][41] She was inspired by several musicians, including Prince, Nina Simone, Barbra Streisand, Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones.[93][94] Keys is a multi-instrumentalist who plays five different musical instruments.[95] Keys’ style is rooted in gospel and vintage soul music, supplemented by bass and programmed drumbeats.[96] She heavily incorporates classical piano with R&B, soul and jazz into her music,[97][98] but began experimenting with genres, including pop and rock, in her third studio album, As I Am.[96][99][100] Patrick Huguenin of the New York Daily News stated that her incorporation of classical piano riffs contributed to her breakout success.[36] Jet magazine states she "thrives" by touching her fans with "piano mastery, words and melodious voice".[101] The Independent described her style as consisting of "crawling blues coupled with a hiphop backbeat", noting that her lyrics "rarely stray from matters of the heart".[102] Blender referred to her as "the first new pop artist of the millennium who was capable of changing music."[103]

Keys playing the piano while performing Keys has a vocal range of a contralto that spans three octaves.[36][104] Critics have called her voice strong, raw and impassioned;[22][105] others feel that her voice is emotionally manufactured at times and that she pushes her voice out of its natural range.[22][105] Keys’ songwriting is often criticized for lack of depth, calling her writing

Keys is the co-founder and Global Ambassador of Keep a Child Alive, a non-profit organization that provides medicine to families with HIV and AIDS in Africa.[112] Keys and U2 lead singer Bono recorded a cover version of Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush’s "Don’t Give Up", in recognition of World AIDS Day 2005. Keys and Bono’s version of the song was retitled "Don’t Give Up (Africa)" to reflect the nature of the charity it was
