The highly talented Alicia Keys continues to crank out the hits and perform her past greats, taking the stage before national audiences at the Grammys and the Super Bowl. She also branched out beyond music, becoming the face of the new Blackberry 10 campaign and appearing in multiple events promoting the phone. She's also found time to sell over 750,000 copies of her late-2012 album Girl on Fire, launch a public information campaign in the U.S. to help promote HIV/AIDS awareness among women, and even take home a couple NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Female Artist and Outstanding Music Video (for "Girl on Fire").
