I love this idea for a video. It allows her fans to feel like they are truly a part of Keys’ life–or at least her musical journey. It’s a beautiful thing and it actually gives the song a whole new meaning. Alicia’s always had this culturally aware undertone to her music and its refreshing to see her passion for the people manifested in her latest video.
