She may have been the only female performer of the night, but as far as we're concerned, she MORE than made up for it in passion, raw emotion, and SUPREME talent alone!
Alicia Keys took the stage at last night's 12-12-12: Concert For Sandy Relief fundraiser held at Madison Square Garden, and as she was born and raised in New York City, there was no denying how truly important it was for her to contribute to those still struggling to bounce back from the devastating superstorm…as it permeated throughout every note she sang!
Ch-ch-check out her STUNNING medley of new single Brand New Me and No One (above)!
Goodness! Listening to her sing is like being wrapped in a warm hug, isn't it?!
Not to mention we are LOVING her new 'do!
But for those of you furious that Miz Keys did not include her tribute to the Big Apple, Empire State of Mind, in her setlist, worry not!
That sneaky singer waited until the end of the concert to belt THAT number out, along with all the other artists from the event joining her on stage, and you can see it all for yourself…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
