R'n'B diva Alicia Keys rocked the Central Park this Friday morning, August 30 when she performed as the latest featured artist in "Good Morning America" Summer Concert Series. The classy singer performed songs from her latest album "Girl on Fire" as well as her 2007 hit "No One".
In a black top, pink pants and a new bowl hair cut, Keys played "Girl on Fire", "Listen to Your Heart" and "No One" live from behind her signature grand piano with a band and alternately moving around onstage to drop some choreography with the male back-up dancers. She also brought out R'n'B crooner Maxwell for their duet "Fire We Make".
During a short chat with show hosts Lara Spencer and Sam Champion, Keys talked about celebrating her third wedding anniversary with husband, hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz. When asked by Champion if she's "settling into old married life now," Keys answered with, "It's hot...and fiery." Their marriage apparently "inspired" the lyrics to the steamy track "Fire We Make".
Keys is slated to trek across Latin America next month for her "Set the World on Fire" tour and is also set to perform in the Rock in Rio festival this coming September in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She also executive produces film "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete" starring Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson and Anthony Mackie and directed by George Tillman. It hits theatres on October 11.
