    Getting my Songs in Minor 10 anniverary copy today. YAY! so proud of A keys. Yeah this b**** will go down in the books of great music history. The fact that she can go back and re-release her first cd which is a classic 10 years later, shows just how times the record will be 10, 20, 30, 50 years from now. Thanks A. Keys.

    Great vocals. I’m really glad that motherhood inspired her and made her want to go back to work.She proves that being a mother doesn’t stop female performers from being on stage too. Go ahead A Keys

    First of all Sam she did not sing Superwoman, I was at the Beacon Last night and I will tell you this woman is nothing but the truth, unbelievable. 2 hours straight. No back up singers no other instruments but her piano and her voice. I thouught I was in heaven, her voice was heaveny and her interaction with the audience was so personal and sweet, she is exactly what you see, a wonderful ssweet soul. There was nothing but love and Awww! In the building last night. Alicia is here to stay, she is a force. After 10 years her songs feel like they just came out yesterday. Timeless!! Let the haters bow because they will be sick and filled with hate for years to come. Her fans are soooo diverse Young, old, black white, asia, and you could clearly see the level of class that comes with her fans, so let these black blog cyber bullies that live with self hate and misery continue their foolishness when it comes to Alicia and her personal life, you do not matter. The mainstream media and her true fans(millions) are on another level with Alicia. There were people that came from overseas for this concert, I met a few and they were so in aww!!. I look forward to seeing so much more from Ms. Keys, her talent is limitless: Songwriter, singer, music producer, movie producer, philanthropist and now Television movie producer and Broadway producer. Phenominal woman.

    Most Alicia Keys fans don’t post on blogs…As you can see, they go to her concert and buy albums. That concert was amazing

    @Lisa, RoyalKev & Sarah, I co-sign 100% … Alicia is a true artist & she doesn’t need all the huff & fluff for people to appreciate & recognize her talent … I really hope she stays with the concept of “Piano & I” b/c that is when she is at her absolute best … people need to realize that the most popular person isn’t necessarily the best or the most talented…

    TIMELESS!

  15. Anita July 1, 2011

    Lisa, you stated that very well and I totally agree with you. I just hope with everything else she’s going to be doing she continues some music too. There’s no one elses’s music quite like hers. It’s the best.

    Stephanie, you’re right also. It’s not necessarily the most popular person who is the most talented and I also hope she sticks with the concept of “Piano and I”.

    Alicia is such an amazing singer and such a real person. I only hope next time I’ll be able to see a live performance. Much love and luck to this lady in the future. I know she’ll be amazing. Loved this show! It couldn’t have been better.

    No sound. So frustrated.

    @ Carl

    So one’s talent is based on comments made on posts. Wow.

  18. koko July 1, 2011

    Go to Vevo or AOL Sessions to see the full concert. It was awesome!!!

  19. mobwife July 1, 2011

    You could say some nasty things about this chick but …..DAMN SHE CAN “S A N G”!!

    GET IT ALICIA!! T…….HIS WAS PERFECT!!

  20. roberto July 1, 2011

    beautiful performance and she’s wearing the earrings Oprah gave her @ the legend’s ball!!!

  21. Jasmine July 1, 2011

    I like Alicia and vocally she has improved but her range is very small. She is no Mariah or Beyonce. I always buy her albums because she is an excellent songwriter and her lryics are always good.

  22. Nikki July 2, 2011

    @jasmine girl sit!! Mariah has range with no soul. Beyonce’s range is built on runs, she does not have a high range without running. Alicia has a combination of range and soul and it is evident when she ang live on Thursday night with nothing but her voice and that piano pure unadulterated talent.

  23. Free July 2, 2011

    I like Alicia her performance at the BET awards was great, but people looked over her! @ Nikki what do you mean Beyonce’s range is built on runs? That makes no musical sense at all! Are you saying She can only access her higher registers when she does a run? That’s not true at all! That would mean she lacks technique and she is far from lacking vocal technique. I am not sure why we compare the artist, but there really is no need to.

  24. aisha aguilera keys July 2, 2011

    @ Jasmine
    I used to think that too, then I bought her first albums and saw her before TEOF performances, which proved I was wrong.
    @ Free
    I thought she was amazing at BET too! Somehow I don’t really like this performance.
    @ Carl
    If u go to other blogs, A has as much comments as B, and her audience is relatively more mature.

  25. AC July 2, 2011

    The show was amazing!!! For future concerts, she needs to dedicate at least 30 minutes of her shows to her singing and playing that piano with no backup singers or band.

  26. nice_gurl July 3, 2011

    She has some real talent. To be able to do over an hour of songs with just the piano and no breaks is amazing. Love A. Keys. Also, there’s no need to compare singers. Mariah, Beyonce and A.Keys have very different voices, but they are all amazing.

  27. SASHA July 5, 2011

    I was present for this show… she was absolutely AMAZING!!! I’ve seen her perform 11 times and this is the only time I’ve seen her do an ENTIRE show with just her vocals and her piano. I LOVED IT! She played some of her personal favs, interacted with the crowd, and didn’t mess up on a single piano key or vocal note. Thia is definitely my favorite show I’ve been to thus far!
