So I heard Alicia Keys latest single "Girl on Fire" a few weeks back and I thought, "what an amazing singer". Fast forward to today and as I was listening to it again, she once again confirmed it for me. Better then Beyonce. The high notes and runs Alicia pulls off are absolutely phenomenal. OMG. Another part of her that I truly respect is the philantrophy work she frequently gets involved with. Not alot of people in the industry do what she does and she seems very passionate about it. That's another +1 for her.

One of my all time favorite entertainers! It's hard to top songs like Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart, Doesn't Mean Anything, and Girl On Fire.
