Help Celebrate 10 Years of Alicia Keys’ ‘Songs in A Minor’
It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Alicia Keys‘ incredible debut album, ‘Songs in A Minor,’ hit shelves, selling 50,000 copies on its first day of availability alone. The album went on to secure five Grammys and shift over 10 million copies worldwide, gaining platinum status in 10 different countries and securing recognition for the then 20-year-old native New Yorker on the international stage.
