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.
