Giving Back: 15 of The Most Charitable Celebrity Moms
Alicia Keys is a musical icon. At only 34 years old she is a multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter. Her debut album Songs in A Minor, went platinum five times over. In addition to being a musical genius she is a philanthropist. She is the co-founder of Keep A Child Alive. The work for KCA spans continents and KCA feels it’s their job to force the conversation, to keep the issue of Aids and HIV awareness in the public domain. Through their campaigns, events, and advocacy, they work to ensure the needs of people living with HIV are not forgotten. In July 2010, Keys married hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz. The couple had their first child together in October 2010, and named him Egypt Daoud Dean. The couple welcomed their second child on Dec. 27, 2014 and named their son, Genesis Ali Dean. Alicia Keys juggles being a super mom to her kids and being a superstar to her fans.
She had this to say on The Today Show:
“I really just want this song to be the dialogue that starts to ask ourselves why are we here. What are we here to do? Cause if we can start this dialogue with ourselves then that can start the bigger conversation about how we can bring change to the world.”
As a mother you start feeling a fierceness you have more empathetic energy. I’ve always been an empathetic person. I’ve always related to what we’ve gone through as a humanity but when you start seeing your kids in the mix and what they are going to grow up in, what they are going to be a part of or how they can help change you get fiercer about it.”
Meet Their Kids: Alicia Keys
This past weekend, Alicia Keys celebrated her 34th birthday. And in addition to a totally awesome House Party themed pajama party, what better way to celebrate the singer-musician then tracing back to when it all started for her? Her debut album, Songs in A Minor, was one of the strongest debuts of any artist. She won five Grammy Awards in 2002 after Lauryn Hill did it three years prior with The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys must really love each other. Because every year each one of them goes all out to make their partner’s birthday celebration one to remember. Just a few months ago, Alicia surprised Swizz with a Coming to America themed birthday party.
And this past weekend, Swizz outdid himself with a House Party themed pajama party. But what made this extravaganza so special was the fact that the entire primary cast reunited to be there for the evening. Kid ‘n’ Play performed, along with Full Force. And, in what had to be one of the best moments of the night, Tisha Campbell and AJ Johnson, who played Sidney and Sharane respectively, took the dance floor and brought back their choreographed moves from the movie.
Check out the clip from their dance scene in the video below.
Yaaasss! I watched this video with the biggest grin on my face. And afterward, I only had one question, what happened to my invite?

The age of the great singer has pretty much come and gone, but there are some very talented musicians who have managed to get better with time. On the flipside, there are also singers who started out with great voices, only to have them wane over time (blame it on age, hard living, etc.). Here are 10 examples on both sides of singers whose voices have improved greatly over the years, and a few who have lost their mojo for a variety of reasons.
Worse: Alicia Keys
A. Keys was never out here singing like Anita Baker, but as she got older and started writing and arranging more and more songs that pushed her voice past a limit she is really capable of (Yes, I’m talking about “Girl on Fire”), the change in her voice became more noticeable.
