Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys

Well it seems like everyone has spoken.
Alicia Keys really is the most popular woman on this blog.
Alicia was born Alicia Augello Cook on January 25, 1981 in Manhattan, in New York City.
Her mother was Irish-Italian and her father was Jamaican.
She made an appearance in 1985 at the age of four on The Cosby Show, where she was one of a group of girls that were Rudy Huxtable's sleepover guests in the episode.
At the age of seven she began to play the piano, and learned classical music by composers such as Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin.
She enrolled in the Professional Performing Arts School at the age of 12, and started writing songs at the age of 14.
(Britney Spears also attended the same school)

Alicia's first album, "Songs in A Minor", in 2001, was a hit, selling over 11 million copies and earning her five Grammy Awards.
This is the album her hit "Fallin"came from.
Her next album "The Diary of Alicia Keys" in 2003 sold over eight million copies and got her four more Grammy Awards.
She relaesed a live album in 2005, "Unplugged", that debuted at number one in the United States.
Her third studio album in 2007 "As I Am" produced her most successful song worldwide to date, "No One".

In 2007 she made her big screen debut, playing assassin Georgia Sykes in the film Smokin' Aces.
Even though the movie received poor reviews, I liked it.
And I thought she was great (and stunning) in it.

Besides Smokin'Aces, she has appeared in The Nanny Diaries (2007) and The Secret Life of Bees (2008).

On June 26th, Alicia will receive the Golden Note Award from ASCAP, (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) in Los Angeles.
Past winners of this award include Diddy, Jay-Z, Quincy Jones, LL Cool J and Lionel Richie.

Alicia is currently dating music producer and Hip-hop star Swizz Beatz.
