Before she set the web ablaze with her “Thinking About Forever” rendition and Every Girl EP, Roc Nation’s Bridget Kelly toured alongside Jay-Z on his “Blueprint 3” tour. During Jay’s “Empire State Of Mind” performance, she filled in the big shoes owned by Alicia Keys. Bridget, like Alicia, is also biracial and from Manhattan. This made comparisons to the Grammy-winning songstress inevitable.
When asked on about her feelings regarding the comparisons, Bridget says:
I love it. I love the Alicia comparisons. I think she’s brilliant. There’s no shame in being compared to Alicia. I’m a fan of her work and her movement and what she stands for for women.
