Alicia Keys Performs ‘Not Even the King’ at Stand Up to Cancer Benefit

Alicia Keys

Less than 24 hours after debuting her new single “Girl on Fire” at the VMAs, Alicia Keys was back on stage performing at the “Stand Up to Cancer” benefit on Friday night. The R&B songstress took the stage with “Not Even the King,” a new song off her upcoming album Girl on Fire, due November 27. She debuted the powerful record earlier this year at the MTV Upfront presentation.

“This is for all the beautiful people in my life and yours who are fighting a war against cancer, and suddenly all that matters is love. I pray that we win,” said Keys while seated at the piano.

Get lifted with Alicia.

    Beautiful song, she sounds like an angel! the melody sounds a bit like Celine Dion’s “S’il suffisait d’aimer” at some parts.

    feel like when she hooked up with Swiss beats, it damaged her career a bit.

    just sayin…

    @dodo, She did not hook up. She found the love of her life. Respect that.

    The lyrics and message are almost identical to “If I Aint Got You” …

    Just so you all are aware, the user “YoungPereezy YMCMB-MMG Chapter 5″ is no one other than MinajRules2012 simply utilizing a different name.

    @Grant, does this person have a life? Is it a depressed woman seething on the internet? Is it Mashonda trolling every Alicia Keys post? I don’t get it.
