There are certain songs that stick with you. ‘Fallin’ by Alicia Keys is absolutely one of those songs for me. Alicia Keys is one of the most musically talented women on this planet, that is something that I am absolutely sure of.
Alicia was only 20 when she put this song out. During a time when pop music ruled, Alicia put out a soulful song accompanied by a music video where she wasn’t showing off her body. I am not saying that there is anything wrong it, this was just when Christina and Britney ruled the radio and TRL countdown, and being sexy was their thing.
Since Alicia put out this song she has put out a ton of other hits. ‘No One’, ‘My Boo’, ‘Girl On Fire’, ‘A Woman’s Worth’, and I could keep going on and on. She will also be appearing on this upcoming season of “The Voice” which I am excited to see. Alicia’s voice is out of this world and like I said, she is just talented all around. She sings, plays instruments, and writes her own stuff, you can’t deny talent.
In a world where there seemed to be a million people trying to be the next Britney, thank you for deciding to be the first Alicia.
