CD: As I Am

When it comes to music, I’m a hopeless pop-culture junkie. If you play a song twenty times every day on the radio, it’s embedded in my subconscious and, yes, I have to own it. I guess I’m a music marketer’s dream.

So I bought Alicia Keys’ CD, “As I Am” because I’ve heard and like the big hit song “No One” so much.

I didn’t expect the pleasant surprise that this CD has a lot of depth to it. I find myself listening to it over and over again. I really like this CD because it’s soft and tough at the same time. There’s a lot of variety — in words, moods and music — on this one. It’s rich.

I’m still exploring Alicia Keys’ music and want to hear more of her work. I know now I have to buy her older CD “The Diary of Alicia Keys,” a top-seller, which I almost bought once before.

According to Wikipedia, Alicia Keys turned down Columbia University to pursue her music career after graduating from the Professional Performing Arts School in Manhattan. She grew up in Harlem and is now 27 or 28 years old.

Alicia Keys is very prolific. She’s acted on television and has recorded several CDs. She is a songwriter and author.

Alicia Keys is a spokesperson and co-founder of the non-profit organization Keep A Child Alive, which provides HIV/AIDS medicines to families in Africa. Hear Bono and Alicia Keys perform “Don’t Give Up Africa” on YouTube.com (live version).

Alicia is one of the talented artists. She is a neo soul singer, songwriter, pianist, record producer, actress, author…and more. Really she is a multitalented artist thus she has won numerous awards. As a singer, she has sold millions of albums during the last year of 2007. Her style has attracted and still attracting more people and the number of the artist’s lovers is expanding everyday. It is in her concerts that we notice Alicia’s great popularity. It becomes so hard to find a ticket or prices become unreasonable. A friend has recommended me a site where to compare ticket prices after then one would book where he finds the lowest prices.
