Young Alicia Keys

Meet Alicia at her "home studio” on 137th St. in Harlem, New York. Just a simple one bedroom. The room was so small, she sat on the bed and played the keyboard piano trying to come up with songs that matched the feelings in her heart. She sang in a closet covered with blankets through blazing New York Summers trying to find her voice and show non-believers she could do it. No matter what they said, she could do it all. She could write it, play it, sing it and produce it, and she did.
