Keys’ charity, ‘Keep A Child Alive,’ was at the forefront of the event, and many stars came out to support the expecting singer in her efforts to make the world a better place.
Alicia and Swizz have been heavily involved in social issues since sharing the grand news of their expectancy earlier this year. The R&B singer released a hit single, ‘We Are Here,’ that addresses some of the world’s greatest concerns, and later launched a movement that currently challenges participants to discover their purpose in life. Swizz has been by his wife’s side at every endeavor, and even held up a sign in protest at Alicia’s rally in honor of the Chibok girls kidnapped from a school in Nigeria several months back. “Six months, and [they] are still missing. And it is just outrageous that that’s going on,” said Keys.
The singer discussed her passion to see change in the world, which has intensified since becoming a mother, during her latest visit to The View. “Being a mother has definitely given me more of a fierceness and understanding of what I believe in,” shared the star.
Alicia and Swizz are expecting their second child to arrive in December. The couple also have a son named Egypt.
