Born Alicia Cook in New York, Keys has that most rare of talents – a vocal range matched by a musical ability. She has played piano from the age of seven and retains classical ambitions to this day. Her 2001 debut Songs In A Minor contained her first US No. 1, modern soul epic ‘Fallin’’, which showcased her vocal range dramatically. In 2005, Keys joined an elite rank of artists who have released their own MTV Unplugged albums.
