Alicia Keys Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Songs in A Minor
Lost in the sea of Beyonce 4 album news, there was another significant release in music stores yesterday. Alicia Keys‘ classic debut, Songs in A Minor was rereleased and the special edition tenth anniversary includes unreleased tracks and video footage. In 2001, music mogul and J Records founder Clive Davis introduced Alicia as a cross between Lauryn Hill and Whitney Houston — a gritty, cornrow-wearing R&B singer who was a brilliant, classically trained pianist with both a stunning voice and beauty. Multiple Grammy Awards and platinum plaques later, I think its safe to say she has lived up to the expectations. Click the pic to enlarge.
