Alicia Keys Height and Weight Stats

Alicia Keys was born in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. Keys was raised by her single mother, Nikki Augello, a part-time actress and para-legal in the area of New York City called Hell’s Kitchen. Keys began piano lessons at age 7 and Augello’s dogged insistence that her daughter stick with the instrument led Keys to attend Manhattan’s prestigious Professional Performance Arts School where she majored in choir. She excelled academically and was allowed to graduate at the age of 16. Keys decided to follow Davis, who had engineered the careers of such soul luminaries as Aretha Franklin, to his new label. Unlike many of her pop-music contemporaries, the precocious Keys not only sings, but writes and produces her own music. In 1998, she signed with Arista Records, and wrote, produced and recorded her own albums. In 1999, she left Arista to join J Records, headed by legendary music impresario Clive Davis, and her success has been meteoric. Her 2001 debut album, “Songs in A Minor,” sold six million copies and garnered five Grammys. Her album “Diary” won her four more Grammys in 2005.
