Alicia Keys To Release App For Kids
As well as preparing to release the new album ‘Girl On Fire’ and creating her own personalised line of Reebok trainers, Alicia Keys is branching out in the digital world and releasing her own app called ‘The Journals of Mama Lee and LeeLee’. The animated app is based on the relationship between Keys and her grandma and users will be able to ‘sit’ at her desk, draw and play a virtual piano…
The 31-year-old told the Hollywood Reporter: “The amazing part of this is it’s completely inter-generational.
“It’s about a daughter and her grandmother. It’s something that a mother and child can experience together, siblings can experience together, something that a grandmother and a grandchild can experience together. My mother and (2-year-old son) Egypt would definitely go through the story and play the games … and write in the journals and draw pictures.”
She later tweeted: “My nana is a #girlonfire and continues to inspire me every day!
“I’m super excited to have a project coming soon in her memory.”
