Alicia Keys Draws Inspiration From The Late Michael Jackson?
The R&B singer pays respect to the King of Pop...
The shows saw her donning an outfit that the King of Pop would have worn, as well as covering his tracks.
Keys told Rap.com: “The first concert I ever attended was Michael Jackson and I think it was like the reunion tour or something because he had all his brothers with him, and it was like a big, huge deal. There were all these ambulances everywhere and I was like, ‘Mommy, who’s sick?’
"I didn’t understand the fact that in just a few hours grown men would be fainting at this concert. It was just incredible to see that level of performance so young. That was a great first concert to go to.”
She added: “I think Michael Jackson has influenced every performer on the face of the earth. What he really inspired me to do and influenced me to do is my best, and I feel like what he represented is quality and craftsmanship with his performance.
"He was one of the best performers of all time and it was because he put in work, he put in time, he was creative, and he wanted to be the best. When I go up [on stage] and when I arrange my show, that’s exactly the mind state that I have.”
