When International R& B/ Pop Multi- Award Singing Diva Alicia Keys, stepped out onto the red carpet of the World Music Awards 2007, photographers, paparazzi, fans and even viewers at home noticed a more confident, yet graceful singer who is once again setting fashion trends. Gone are her classic braids she shared with top spotlight music artist, Brandi Norwood, and today arrives voluminous curls and the classic “Sade” off the face pulled back look to expose the eyes, and window of every music artist’s soul. You get the sense that Alicia is in control of her personal style which radiates with clear simplicity and precision. She mentions on the Late Night Show that she has been perfecting over 600 situps a day which is great for the physique, and especially during the winter months. By spring, all of the ladies will be in optimal shape with Alicia Keys routine. Her music as predicted by Disilgold Soul Magazine is number one on the charts and it looks like 2008 is her year.
