Alicia Keys places a lot of value in family. The singer and songwriter recently sat down with Origin Magazine where she talked about her career and how much her clan means to her.
“You could have all the riches in the world, but it doesn’t mean much without family,” said Keys. “I’m very blessed to have a phenomenal husband, son, and beautiful family and friends around me.”
The singer went on to tell the media source that her husband, Swizz Beatz, and son, Egypt, serve as her inspiration to be an active contributor to changing the world. “I find that the love we share fills me up and makes me see and appreciate life in a different way,” explained the star. “I’m very passionate about my organization, Keep a Child Alive, which helps women, children, and families in Africa and India who are HIV positive. We provide medicine for children and families who have AIDS and would otherwise not be able to afford the proper medicine to stay alive. We support community-based organizations that understand the needs of the people living around them. I’m very proud of all the work we do.”
Alicia is currently on tour with her family, singing her most celebrated hits while Swizz and Egypt support her from the sidelines. Keys and Beatz wed three years ago. Egypt is their first child together.
