It seems that Alicia Keys is still short of backups to support her on tour. The fact occurs as the singer plans to reinforce her tour line-up by adding a backup singer to join her.
To select the backup singer Alicia will do an audition for female singers in the age around 21-30 years-old. The applicant must submit a video, which length is about 30 seconds or more, of themselves singing acapella. They must send the video to the R 'n' B singer's MySpace page until May 5. A source stated that two main conditions to get the job is that the contestants must be physically fit and able to dance.
Until now there are no news yet on when and where would the new back up singer will start her tour with Alicia. On the other hand, her tour dates will still run through June 18 and reportedly she plans to keep on touring until 2009.
Besides busy touring, previously Alicia has also stated that she has already planned to make a new album. She said that she will use a little bit of her time during tours to prepare the new album. "At this point I'm trying to find the space to continue to record as I'm on tour," Alicia said.
