Alycia Keys Top Artist for 2012

Alicia-Keys_510x317

Ms. Keys (or should I say Mrs. Swizz Beatz) career has been sizzling ever since she dropped her first studio album, Songs in A Minor, in 2001.  Eleven years later, her blaze still smolders and now she is declaring that the girl is on fire, literally.  On November 27, 2012 Keys released her fifth studio album Girl on Fire.  The Hell’s Kitchen native is always in an “Empire State of Mind” and is NYC through and through.  Her songs are a source of inspiration for many.  There could’ve been no better choice to close the 12/12/12 concert at The Garden than Alycia Keys.  Philanthropist, mother, wife, actor, composer, musician, ravishing beauty…looks like her star will continue to burn bright in 2013.  Flame on!
