With the ongoing coronavirus, practicing social distancing, Alicia keys performed her rendition of her 2007 hit song, “no one” at the NFL kickoff event on 10th September.
As we all know, Alicia has also been adored for her looks and her glamorous outfits on various occasions. This time, she wore a dazzling blue denim jacket, rejoicing to the pop New York culture and while performing on stage. The rain that poured down on the singer and her band, as well as the audience, added a beautiful touch as Alicia and her band went on to end their performance by raising their fists in solidarity with the movement concerning the black lives.
The superstar followed it up by singing her latest song, “Love looks better” with the background screen showing graphics supporting the black community. At the end of her moving performance, the screen flashed the word “vote.”
Despite a lot of discussion on the propulsion of politics in the NFL, Alicia keys went on to explain why she decided to perform for the NFL despite racial issues. Along with the explanation she provided, it was also announced that the league would contribute to a new one billion dollar endowment fund, aimed at supporting the black community.
The fund is also expected to affect the lives of the people belonging to the black community in a positive light as the protests against systemic racism and injustice erupted after the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others in the US in recent months.
We are already seeing the blatant injustices that are going on around us. As an artist, I’m always thinking about how can I use my platform to further racial equity. This fund is one of the answers and our goal is to empower Black America through investing in Black businesses, Black investors, institutions, entrepreneurs, schools and banks in a way to create sustainable solutions.Alicia Keys to Billboard
