I found an opera singer in the most unlikely of places, the American Music Awards. I just happened upon the station and thought hey let me see what crap is gonna be recycled this go around.
Most performances, with the exception of Ne-yo were forgettable. The announcer kept me hooked witha promise of a special guest to sing with Alicia Keys.
So, Alicia sits at her piano and does her thing. Queen Latifah comes out and spits a verse and sings a bit. Next, the tour de force . . . Kathleen Battle.Whooaaa!
If you are not familiar with KB click the link above. She is the reigning diva of opera. Alicia Keys just managed to show her prowess as an artist and aficionado of music for including the legend in her performance. Loves it!
