Alicia Keys performs during the Citi AAdvantage "Love the Journey" concert at Avery Fisher Hall, on Monday, Oct. 15, 2012 in New York.
Last night, we were privileged to experience Grammy-Award winner Alicia Keys' intimate performance at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. The concert was held exclusively for Citi/AAdvantage cardmembers (and lucky invites, like Baeble
) in celebration of the 25-year journey and partnership between the two companies.
Why Alicia Keys, you might ask? Throughout the performance, the New York native shared tales of her own journey to stardom in between belting out classics and songs off her latest record Girl on Fire
Covering a show at Avery Fisher Hall is certainly a first for Baeblemusic. It was a pleasant breath of fresh air -- top-shelf beverages, finger foods, and SEATS -- all things we don't commonly encounter at even the finest NYC indie-rock venues. And to top it all off, she may be a super-pop, mega-R&B celebrity, but Alicia Keys puts on a show like a rock star.
The "Love the Journey" concert series continues with Maroon 5 this weekend at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
