Alicia Keys

Powered by imdb

Singer Alicia Keys was born Alicia Augello-Cook on January 25, 1981 in New York City to mom Terri, a paralegal, and dad Craig Cook. She was raised by her single mom in the Hell’s Kitchen section of NYC and learned piano at a young age. She graduated valedictorian from the Professional Performing Arts School at age 16 and enrolled at Columbia University. Keys soon signed a record deal with Columbia Records, but struggled to see eye to eye with the label. She left to work with Clive Davis and her music career took off with the album “Songs in A Minor,” featuring her hit single “Fallin’.” The Grammy-winning recording artist is also known for “Girl on Fire,” “Empire State of Mind,” and “No One.” She has lent her musical expertise as a coach on the reality competition show “The Voice.” Aside from music, Keys has directed and produced for film and TV. Keys is also a proud philanthropist. She founded We Are Here in September 2014 and Keep a Child Alive in 2003 to combat HIV in Africa and India. She hosts the organization’s annual benefit The Black Ball. She’s made a statement by walking red carpets and making public appearances sans makeup. Keys married producer Swizz Beatz in August 2010 and they have two sons together, Egypt and Genesis.
