2011: A Decade
By Alicia Keys
Looking back 10 years later is such a mind trip. I feel proud of everything that has been accomplished. I look back through all of the pictures, songs, videos and performances and there’s a big smile on my face because I can’t even believe that all of this has happened. In so many ways, I feel like I’m just getting started. I mean, I’m really just now about to begin to do what I know will be my best work.
I see so much growth and I see how I’ve been able to have so many priceless experiences. I feel grateful and blessed to have been able to do what I love in music for 10 years. And, I plan to do it for 50 million more! Celebrating these 10 years has ignited a fire in me to do better and to continue to be involved in things that really move people. I have learned, I have transitioned, and I have grown. I couldn’t have asked for a better decade to look back on!
I’m also thrilled for what the future holds as I continue to find happiness. I believe happiness is the most important thing in the universe.
