Did You Miss It? Alicia Keys Soars With Cover of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colors’ [Watch]

Published: Sunday 7th Jul 2019 by Rashad

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.

    Good Job, Alicia. She sounded good and not as strained as she did the last couple of years. Oh, I miss some old Alicia…all of the albums before “girl on fire” were just that – fire

    Poor Alicia she stole that man and the turn-coat black community turned against you. Shame because Lessons Learned. Fallen. BUTTERFLYZ. If I aint got you. DIARY. Should be classics.
