Alicia Keys wanted to tribute her hometown New York City and fans by giving an amazing concert in San Patrick’s Day at the emblematic Madison Square Garden.
Keys was not alone for the ride as many friends took part of the show for the opening: Jermaine Paul –who used to be background singer for Keys-, Melanie Fiona – who performed “It Kills Me” and new single “Ay Yo,” and Robin Thicke –rocking “Shakin’ It 4 Daddy” and “Lost Without U.”
The best part was yet to come. At 9:30 pm, Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” started rocking as the diva emerged on towering video screens: “I’m a renegade. I’m a truth seeker. They told me I would never make it and I did. They told me I wasn’t strong enough but I am mighty. The element of freedom is tattooed on my heart,” Keys announced. The devoted audience went literally crazy when Keys took over the stage.
Alicia looked fabulous and she performed her greatest hits like “No One,” “Superwoman” or “If I Can’t Have You.”
One of the most acclaimed moments when was Beyonce joint Alicia to perform together “Put It in a Love Song.”
Of course, Beyonce’s man couldn’t miss the date. Jay Z performed “Empire State of Mind” along with Keys.
In summary, Keys delivered a more that remarkable show and she gave away all her positive energy to fans in her very New York City.
