Happy 40th birthday today the uber-talented and ultra-cool imaginative pop-soul songstress Alicia Keys (born 1/25/81). Keys has been on the pop radar and earned critical acclaim all around with her seven albums and having served as host of the Grammys. Keys’ success has been no fluk as she scored the 2001 US No.1 & UK No.3 single ‘Fallin’ and the 2001 US No.1 & UK No.7 album Songs In A Minor. Keys has sold over 25 million albums and singles worldwide and won numerous awards, including nine Grammys. Check out here NPR TinyDesk concert from early in 2020.
