Hip hop and R&B star Alicia Keys (centre) made a hurried
entry into Barbados for the 12th annual Jazz Festival.
Keys will perform at the gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex tomorrow – 11 days before she celebrates her 24th birthday.
Asked if she had any Caribbean roots, the New York native
said: “I hope so!”
Sloe-eyed beauty Alicia Keys was this photographer’s
dream model as she posed patiently during an hour-long photo shoot yesterday
morning on the picturesque Payne’s Bay Beach on the West Coast.
Preceded by her towering six-foot, nine-inch bodyguard, “Carter”, and with her mum Terri by her side, the petite Barbados Jazz Festival headliner strolled across the sands and plopped into a hammock, one of the props.
Instantly, her carefully made-up face, framed by a freshly-plaited cornrow hairstyle, the 24-year-old Keys relaxed as she broke into an almost shy smile. She adjusted the body-hugging, bubble-gum pink top, checked the ankle-length rolled up cuffs on her blue jeans, and took a deep breath.
While the Times photo-shoot was business, it was also a rare moment of light-hearted relaxation for the singer. She spread her arms wide to steady herself in the swaying hammock and grinned.
“It’s beautiful here and we like it very much,”
Terri Augello, Key’s mother and personal assistant, told the Saturday
Sun in a brief interview.
