Alicia Keys lent her oft-praised vocals to the iHeartMedia-sanctioned Stonewall Day concert, which marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
Performing live in her hometown of New York City last Friday (June 28), the response to her set – namely her remake of Cyndi Lauper‘s 1986 chart-topping hit ‘True Colors’ – was so positive Keys and team decided to repackage it as a music video and upload it to her official Youtube handle.
“I felt so moved to play at #Stonewall50 during World Pride this year knowing it was in my hometown, and this song captured the energy so perfectly!!,” Keys said. “YOU COULD FEEL IT! New York, you showed your True Colors and they were so beautiful!!”
The Grammy winner donned her signature braids and a Stella McCartney jumpsuit to show love for a community that’s long supported her in her nearly 20 year career.
