Alicia Keys Speaks of Romance in ‘A Harlem Love Story’ — Video

Diana Levine for AOL

Alicia Keys wrote her five-time Grammy-winning debut ‘Songs in A Minor’ at the turn of the century, when she was just 19. “Some people may say I was still a kid, but the city has a way of making you grow up quick,” the New York City native notes in ‘A Harlem Love Story,’ a 10-minute ode-to-uptown music video medley that revisits her breakthrough hits ‘Fallin” and ‘A Woman’s Worth.’

The video is a warm-up to Keys’ one-woman piano show tonight, Thursday, June 30, where the soulful singer-songwriter is set to commemorate the 10th anniversary of her debut LP during Piano & I: A One Night Only Event With Alicia Keys at the Beacon Theatre. Fans can tune into the intimate show and watch live here at 9PM EST.

“I fell in love three times that summer,” Keys candidly admits in ‘A Harlem Love Story.’ “I fell in love with my piano, I fell in love with songwriting and I fell in love with him …” And while Keys says she wouldn’t change anything about the last decade, it’s the journey of the next 10 years that she’s looking forward to.
