Soul Fixin'

A. Keys + Lady O = Superwomen

Soul star Alicia Keys made an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show last week, along with the 'Secret Life of Bees' cast, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Dakota Fanning, & Sophie Okonedo. Each lady got a little one on one time with the Queen of Daytime TV. While chatting with Ms. Keys, Oprah asked Alicia if she was as comfortable behind the camera as she was behind the piano, Alicia responded "I never want to find myself too comfortable anywhere...because I don't think you can grow if you are too comfortable...I like to do things that I'm not quite comfortable with because it pushes me to do better." Words of wisdom indeed. At the end of the show, Alicia took center stage and performed her anthem of feminine empowerment 'Superwoman.'
