Ellen: Alicia Keys
This year's Grammys host talked about hosting it for the 2nd time, how they coped with the sudden news about Kobe Bryant, it being her birthday too. She's a new album out in March, and did new her song Underdog too.

R&B/soul legend of the last 20 years, as adept on piano as a singer as a writer, she's already got quite the back catalogue, and presumably much more to come. Here's a few:

Fallin'

No One

Girl On Fire

Underdog

Like You'll Never See Me Again

Alicia Keys - Keys To Keys
A few generalised historic comments, but mostly derived from 3 different interviews done to promote her 'Girl on Fire' album. So there was some overlap, and also a chance to see how different interviewers tried to elicit the same answers. She was a judge on the Australian version of The X Factor at one stage, and prefers having short hair. Supportive of Barack Obama and busy with charity work. Claimed "Empire State of Mind" was not necessarily about New York. Hmmm...

Alicia Keys: From Start To Stardom
Mildly better than the previous effort I saw, though again limited in scope. For all the talk of her integrity and ability, it all still turns on the kudos of Clive bloody Davis, and the patronage of Oprah bloody Winfrey.

MTV World Stage: Alicia Keys
At the O2 Academy, Glasgow in Nov 2014, with a quite pregnant Keys belting out a few numbers inbetween chatting to the crowd. Emeli Sande joined her at one stage.

Alicia - Here in Times Square
From 2016, over an hour of Ms Keys and a captive audience in the middle of New York, to push her album "Here". I like some of her songs more than others.

Alicia Keys: Live at Baloise Session
From 2017, she worked through a swathe of material, some of which I could recognise.

Alicia Keys - Live Lounge
A show for BBC Radio 1. She did 5 songs old and new, spoke of love and respect for Billie Eilish and Ed Sheeran.

Alicia Keys Rocks New Year's Eve
She got the gig this year, and did it from LA, barring the interval for the countdown and fireworks marking the start of 2021. Besides her own hits, she threw in a cover of Freedom '90, which was bold, played Million Dollar Bill for the first time (she wrote it for Whitney Houston), and finished with a cover of Viva La Vida too.

How It Feels To Be Free
Produced by her, and with her among the many contributors, actually the 2-part story of 6 legendary women who made a difference in the struggle: Abbey Lincoln, Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll, Nina Simone, Cicely Tyson and Pam Grier (they covered acting as well as music). I was intrigued to learn more of Lincoln, whose name doesn't resonate as the others do, and very glad that Simone was included.

My Life on MTV - Glitter and Grit
The experiences of Miley Cyrus, contrasted with that of Alicia Keys. Alicia has done her share of award shows, Unpluggeds, TRLs and World Stage spots. Some unconvincing humility at times in these clips ("gosh, I never thought I'd do Unplugged" etc). But a worthy place in the pantheon.

MTV Diary: Alicia Keys
She did the show in February 2002, appearing in Chicago and Los Angeles. She mentioned it being the first anniversary of being launched by Clive Davis, and despite some sniffles, she performed and won many awards at the Grammys that year.

MTV Unplugged: Alicia Keys
She appeared in 2005 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music apparently. A fairly steady set with some big choices, and a few surprises too.

Ellen - Farewell Season - Alicia Keys
Brandi Carlile was guest-hosting and turned out to also be an old pal of Alicia's. They had a song which they performed together (A Beautiful Noise). Alicia is a 15x Grammy winner, and has produced a new comic book graphic novel Girl On Fire. She has a son who plays piano. She had her own cosmetics line, called Keys Soulcare. She has helped Brandi out with affirmations at times. They did a guessing game with the audience.
