Alicia Keys promotes first children’s book
Singer and songwriter Alicia Keys, who’s expecting her second child with hit maker Swizz Beatz, appeared on “Live With Kelly & Michael” yesterday, Nov. 11, where she revealed that she is releasing a series of children’s books.
In the first edition, Blue Moon: From the Journals of Mama Mae and LeeLee, the Grammy Award-winning artist, inspired by her childhood relationship with her own grandmother, introduces young readers to an inspirational and magical story about LeeLee, who just moved to the big city and her mystical grandmother, Mama Mae. To help LeeLee adjust to her new home, Mama Mae calms her with the tale of Abey, a young Native American girl from the 17th century, and one adventurous yet magical evening when she too wasn’t sure of her surroundings.
Fun fact: Keys not only wrote but illustrated the first installment of her children’s series.
During Keys’ chat with Kelly and Michael, she also revealed that her 4-year-old son, Egypt, is hoping for a baby brother. He took his wish one step further by suggesting that his parents name his future sibling Prince Eric, after one if his favorite Disney characters from “The Little Mermaid.”
We just love how involved Keys is with her family. We can’t wait to get our hands on these children’s books. Will you be buying? – ruu hawkins/@ruubabie
