New Projects Alicia Keys has been one of my favorite singers for a long time. I love and appreciate her knowledge of and passion for music. She sings, plays piano, composes, performs well, acts, and now innovates. She has owned her own business, AK Worldwide for a few years now and together with her staff Bento Box Interactive Holdings LLC, she has recently released her own app. The app is called The Journals of Mama Mae and LeeLee. It is a children’s storybook with stories that read aloud to you. The different stories are told from different cultures to spread the awareness of other cultures. The app also has games that you can play, a journal you can write in, pictures you can color, a piano you can physically play and music you can listen to, of course composed by Keys.
This being her second app, she is now a pro at entrepreneurship. Her first app released is her Open Mic App, by Sony Music Entertainment, where you can play the instrumental track and sing along to it. You select the song, choose the level of difficulty, and then begin singing. While the tune is playing there is a little bird icon that shows the placement of the pitches by going up and down along with the notes you are to sing and the duration of the note to give you guidance (as shown in the photo below).
AK Worldwide Keys is definitely broadening her horizons and truly delving into the business world. She has now launcher her own company, AK Worldwide, which assists her in her business affairs including her new apps.
“It [AK Worldwide] really explores the ways I can affect the world in a positive way, even outside of music,” says Keys. They are “in the business of inspiration”. The mission statement is “Be the architect of and invest in businesses that inspire the world”.
She has a website that will be starting up soon. It’s called I Am Super Woman. Here woman can encourage each other and share helpful information to each other. Keys calls it a “fresh new source for positive and inspiring news—a destination that empowers and unleashes the super woman in us all”.
Keys is the new Global Creative Director for BlackBerry. She has also partnered with Reebok Classics and has launched sneakers.
Keys is a philanthropist and is involved in many world-changing causes such as Keep A Child Alive, where she is their co-founder and Global Ambassador. Keep a Child Alive uses its voice to raise awareness, mobilize people to take action, and rally resources in the global response to HIV.
The Superwoman is On Fire With 5 albums, 14 Grammys, a viral video and biggest hit “No One” that has over 130 million views, a new album “Girl on Fire”, all of the business opportunities she has stepped into, a marriage and a beautiful baby boy when does she sleep? “This girl is on fire”, lyrics from chart topping single off that album, and she literally is with all that she is accomplishing. She is success in human form.
