Alicia Cook, better known as Alicia Keys, is an American singer and songwriter. She was signed on by Columbia Records when she was only 15 years old. Her debut album, “Songs in A Minor,” was critically acclaimed and very successful. It even gave her five Grammy Awards. Since then, she has risen through the ranks and captured everyone’s hearts. She has even gone on to mentor contestants in the singing competition television show ‘The Voice’ and been a judge.
The Voice is where people apply for their talents to be heard. Contestants are selected through auditions and are trained by the coaches who are there as a guide. Alicia Keys joined The Voice in Season 7 as Pharrell’s advisor. After that, she has appeared as a coach for two consecutive seasons, Season 11 and Season 12, and then later Season 14 as well.
When it is time for the Blind Auditions, Keys is seen as a threat for her skill to butter up the contestants in just the right way so that they choose her team over others. Her contestants’ choices always turn out to be right because she has been to the finale with three artists and was the winning coach in Season 12 with R&B artist Chris Blue.
She made her return in Season 14 with the coaches changing once again. While Adam Levine and Black Shelton were returning coaches, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson were replaced by Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys. The show opened with an Adam and Blake duet on “Fly Me to the Moon” while Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys performed a phenomenal version of Feeling Good.
When the results of the season came out, Keys got second place with her contestant, Britton Buchanan.
