My Interview with Alicia Keys - in Jay Z's dressing room!
I interviewed Alicia Keys in Jay Z's dressing room Tuesday night at her Keep A Child Alive benefit. They SHUT IT DOWN when they performed Empire State of Mind together to close her show. I have never experienced anything like hearing that song, live, in such a small venue. Every single person was on their feet belting the words. I totally lost it. BUT, before I lost it, I was lucky enough to head backstage to chat with Alicia about the creation of that song, her love for Tim McGraw and all things Alicia. Read it here!
This is the ACTUAL performance that I saw and I almost could have cried it was so exciting to be a part of the iconic song in NYC! Jay hit the stage about 4 min in. Shut it down.
