Rocking braids straight from her “Fallin” days, Alicia Keys released an uplifting video on her Facebook page today (Sept. 9).

Accompanying the video, the 33-year-old singer posted a message to her fans:

“The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here. Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before. As I prepare to give birth to a new child, I can’t help and think about the world I’m bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice – we just need to know how to make it heard. I have a vision that I believe is more than a dream, that I know can be our reality. I believe in an empowered world community built on the true meaning of equality – where we are all considered one people, regardless of race, religion, gender, zip code, belief system or sexual orientation. …Our souls were brought together so that we can love each other sister, brother. We Are Here. We are here for all of us. That’s why #WeAreHere. Sent with Light, Alicia Keys”

With a desire to make a difference and create a kinder and more peaceful world for our children, Keys uses her voice as an instrument to be reckon with as she reinforces her vision of an empowered global community in which all people are heard, respected and treated equally with dignity.
