We know Alicia Keys was a prodigy; her first album came out when she was only 20 years old!
But it sounds like her 2-year-old son Egypt may have her beat. According to the Girl On Fire singer, he is already getting started on instruments. She says:
"He plays [piano]. Egypt has a stark sense of rhythm. He also plays the drums already. He likes that most. The kid’s making noise all day long."
Well, sure he can play two instruments, but does he have the drive to take it on the road? She says:
"He’s adorable. Soon Egypt will come on tour with me, and then he’ll get a taste of that world. Most importantly, I want him to do everything he does with passion, whatever that may be."
It sounds like Mom may have some musical competition from the little guy! JK! More like inspiration! She says:
"He’s the best collaboration I’ve ever done, he’s the best song I ever wrote, the best experience I’ve ever had, the best show I’ve ever performed. He’s the best everything."
Awww! When your Mom has passion like that for you, you're definitely going to do everything with passion!
Mom on Fire!
