“No one, no one, no one, no one….”
“I keep on fallin’ in and out of love with you…”
“This girl is on fire…”
“Some people want it all, but I don’t want nothing it all, if it aint you baby…”
“In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do…”
If you didn’t sing those words as you were reading them, you’ve never listened to the radio at ALL! All of these are catchy and popular lyrics sung in songs so well known that very few don’t know, at least the hook of the song.
Alicia Keys is again gracing Chicago with her presence while on her Alicia Keys to the Summer tour on Tuesday, July 18, 2023. The tour kicked off on June 28th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Thousands are expected to fill United Center for this incredible summer event!

About the tour
Ms. Keys herself is excited about the tour. In a statement, she said it “is going to be completely unforgettable and unmissable! I describe it as a celebration of freedom and self-liberation! It’s going to be colorful, magical, and will light up your body, soul, and all of your senses!” Click HERE for more information about the tour.

Livin’ the Dream
On another note, it was nothing less than absolutely exciting, electrifying, and incredible to have the opportunity to meet and sing background on her song, Fallin’, with VJ McCoy and Worship Experience in August, 2022 when she was on tour. An experience that will never be forgotten!
