Inspired by Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys' cut-to-the-bone lyrics have inspired R&B singer/songwriters like the classic-soul powerhouse Jazmine Sullivan and the fusion-minded Elle Varner to turn their deep-seated feelings into song. Her musical virtuosity, meanwhile, paved the way for the likes of piano man John Legend and bass explorer Esperanza Spalding to apply their talents to R&B-influenced pop.
