Alicia Keys derives inspiration from momJune 18th, 2011 - 5:34 am ICT by IANS
London, June 18 (IANS) Singer Alicia Keys says she learnt to balance parenting and work from her mother, who raised her alone.
“My mother was a single mother and she balanced it and worked at it and raised me so well. There’s always a way if you have the will,” bangshowbiz.com quoted Keys as saying.
The singer, who has an eight-month-old son, Egypt, with Swizz Beatz, a record producer, also says that becoming a mother has made her more aware of the thousands of parentless children in the world.
“Being a mother myself has made me think about all the children in the world who are motherless or parentless. It breaks my heart because I’m like, ‘What do they do with nobody there to support them and be with them?” said the 30-year-old.
“I’m a singer, an activist and a mother. I love all three very much and all three of them feed each other. Now becoming a mother makes me understand more about activism and being a mother makes me understand how dreadful it can be to never have a voice to speak to people,” she added.
