Alicia Keys follows a mediocre showing at last evening’s MTV VMAs with a stellar performance in support of the “Stand Up 2 Cancer” benefit. The Grammy-winning superstar delicately poured out her soul while singing “Not Even The King,” a divine ballad presumably lifted from her forthcoming Girl On Fire LP.
“This is for all the beautiful people–in my life and yours–who are fighting a war against cancer,” she narrates. “And suddenly, all that matters is love. I pray that we win.”
