Alicia Keys Lights Up The Empire State Building In Celebration Of Girl On Fire
In celebration of the release of her fifth studio album, Girl On Fire, yesterday, Alicia Keys set the New York City sky ablaze. The 31-year-old singer, who has turned on millions of Americans with her sultry voice, was invited to flip the switch and turn on the Empire State Building on 34th Street in Manhattan, beginning a dynamic LED light show.
“Everything surrounds the Empire State Building, plus the lights on the Empire State Building reflect the different times of the year and the different things that are happening,” Keys said at the event. “It’s such a community feeling there, so tonight, I get to be a part of a special moment.”
As Keys’ latest hit “Girl On Fire” and the unofficial anthem of NYC, “Empire State Of Mind,” played in the air, the iconic landmark’s lights flickered in time with the music.
“Watching the Empire State Building light up with GOF and Empire State of Mind was BEYOND my wildest dreams!!” Alicia said.
