THE AMAZING MISS KEYS.

She’s already been her several times but this time, Alicia Keys not only proved to be one amazing performer, she also proved to the Filipino people that she’s one amazing person. Despite being one of the busiest musicians in the world, Ms.Keys took time to visit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan to give them a glimmer of hope…and glimmer of inspiration.

Yet it’s astounding to note that Ms.Keys never considered herself an inspiration, instead, she considered us her inspiration. During her show, she shares “Here in the Philippines, I’m moved, I’m touched, I’m inspired. Your strength is incomparable”.

And this humility was felt throughout her successful show. Staging memorable songs from her past releases – from classics like “Falling” and “You Don’t Know My Name”  to R&B favorites
like “Empire State of Mind”, “Diary” and “Unbreakable” plus a massive surprise duet with our very own Regine Velasquez for “I Ain’t Got You” and Apl de Ap for a cover of “Where is the Love”. Onstage, the seasoned R&B artist was sassy, confident and flawless.

But of course, it wouldn’t be Girl on Fire tour without sampling tracks from her latest album. Here, she coursed through her new tracks such as “Brand New Me”, “When It’s All Over” and “Girl on Fire” effortlessly. Indeed, worthy of her recently hailed Grammy nomination.

By the end of the concert, Ms.Keys imparted one of the most heartfelt messages given by an artist who’s ever played a show here. She declared, “It made me even more purposable to come and be here. I’m inspired how the Philippines is so powerful and moving. And yes I know we can’t make it alone, that’s why we need each other. So, love each other. Help each other. Together when we come together, nothing is impossible. Thank you for all the love that you gave. You are incredible. Manila, you are unbreakable.”


And she ends by saying, “Let us celebrate love. Let us celebrate life”.

Miss Keys, you  are indeed amazing.
