Talk about on fire! From her 2001 debut release, Songs in A Minor, Keys keeps blazing trails. For nearly seventeen years Alicia Keys has continued to belt out tunes that are both popular and poignant, not to mention the work she does outside of music with the Keep a Child Alive Foundation. As the co-founder of the organization Keys helps to provide medicine to families with AIDS and HIV.
As of late, Miss Keys has been burning bright and heating up the charts with songs such as: "Girl on Fire" and the sexy radio hit "Fire We Make" feat. Maxwell — a prime candidate for our Best Female R&B/Pop Artist nomination.
