1Xtra Live - 2012, Alicia Keys


15 Nov 2012
The Ballroom

Fallin' For Birmingham

The spectacular Ms. Keys is preparing to light up the stage with her sophisticated brand of R&B Soul.

The angel voiced New Yorker has many talents up her sleeve, which include writing a Broadway show, directing a short film alongside Jennifer Aniston and being a dedicated supporter of many charitable causes. She returns to the 1Xtra Stage after stellar performances in 2009 for 1Xtra Presents and a Main stage appearance at Radio 1's Big Weekend in 2010.

Selling over 30 million albums and releasing hit singles such as Fallin’, If I Ain't Got You and the smash collaboration with Jay-Z, Empire State of Mind, Alicia is a role model to many and can rightfully claim her place as one of the greatest R&B artists of all time. With her fifth album, Girl on Fire due later this year, she is sure to bring her effortless style and empowering sound to 1Xtra Live.
