Alicia Keys is one of the strongest and most respected singers on the planet. But there are a lot of things about her past that you may not know.  Let’s go down the list and talk about one of the greatest singers of all time.  Here are a few things you may not know about the amazing Alicia Keys.

1. Alicia Keys’ debut album Songs In A Minor sold more than 50,000 copies on the first day.  This was a huge achievement for the previously unknown artist.  The rest is history after that.

2. Alicia’s talent for singing was discovered when she was five-years-old, singing in her church choir. She went on to develop her talents as a choir major at Manhattan’s Professional Performance Arts School.

3. Astrological Sign: Aquarius. Not that this matters, but we thought you might want to know.

4. At age 16, Alicia Keys’ outstanding grades allowed her to finish high school early.  So yes, she’s a genius too.

5. Bad habit: Cracking her neck.  This is going to really affect her when she gets older.

6. Birth Name: Alicia Augello Cook.  Maybe the name Keys went well with the piano, kinda like Creflo Dollar (even thoug his real name is Dollar, but sometimes, the coincidence is just astonishing).

7. Birth Place : Manhattan, New York, USA.  Maybe that’s what makes her sing about it.

8. Releases her sophomore album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, Tuesday. (December 2, 2003)

9. Her first album, “Songs in A-minor,” sold over 12 million copies, making her the best-selling artist in the world in 2001.

10. Alicia was named one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 2002.  Yes, she’s still as gorgeous as she was when she first came onto the scene.  But being pretty hasn’t helped her rise above the drama.  She is accused of breaking up the marriage of rapper Swizz Beatz and taking him for herself.
