Stars attend the KCA 'Black Ball' 2015 in New York

Singers Alicia Keys, left, and Andra Day exchange polite colloquy on the black carpet at the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC on Thursday, November 5. It's hard to believe Andra is only 30. She has a very mature look about her.

  • Junkanoo

    What kinda of a look was Alicia going for was she channeling Whoopi's character from the movie ghost....Carmelo looks like he bought his suit at Walmart dressing up does nothing for him at least I didn't have to see that bug eyed fame hungry wife of his ....Ramon Harvey where do I begin ....she looks like she just got done with three back to back shifts at a seedy whore house ....do better

  • Sassy24

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Good evening,lawd i gotta leave yall alone.im CRINE!!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is Alicia pregnant? She is ALWAYS giving back.

    Carmelo is very unattractive to me. One of the few men that don't look good in a suit to me.

    Uhhhh so I just read that Toya Wright gave MepmHitz 8 hall passes a year...BUT he still "cheated" on her retarded azz. Btw, she couldn't step out. I may be in the minority but if you have to go into a marrriage knowing your man wants some on the side...maybe yall shouldn't get married yet.

  • Hugga Bunch

    In Andra, I see Rihanna's future, and Earth Kitt's past (RIP).

    Alicia looks lovely.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Happy for you too Dats *hugs*

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Thank you *hugs*

  • Junkanoo

    I think she's out of the uk

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Alicia looks motherly

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I liked Vanessa with that husband. Was surprised they didn't last longer.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Having been married to a celebrity before, I suppose that fell under the "he's a celeb, so he's gonna cheat anyway" line of thinking, so she was just trying to make it a bit more palatable for herself. I don't think I could do it, but I can kinda understand her logic. Nevertheless, I agree with you. If you know from jump, your spouse is gonna cheat, I wouldn't do it.

  • rayne215

    Just heard that andra Day today for first time. Very talented

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    No ?

    ??????????????????

  • Sassy24

Only time she captures me is when she hits thoughs high notes! Ion know I'm a bit anal bout music! I do like her though.... But.... Can't explain it..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I just seen someone compare her to Jesse J ... Shid on YouTube! Checkout Jesse J yoyo (nobody's perfect) live performance! Chile bye ! Off that one performance I bought her album twice at best buy years ago! So many talented artist that get no play in America! And that performance was before she was even big in the UK ! Beast<<< Thank me later if ya watch!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile ??????

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Oh yeah check out Jesse J big white room live acoustic on YouTube! She wrote that cut when she was 12 by the way! All this shyt bout 7 years old nevertheless! Beautiful voice ... #Ilovemusic

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Oh UK singers have some of the most soulful artists! Chile! They get it ... Joss Stone, Jesse J, Emile Sande, Amy Winehouse, Adele ... I can go on and on... And on..... Old skool Motown, blues ... R &b is extremely popular over there to artist! They appreciate our old skool music more than we do... Just my observation! .... They get the essence that we lost after the 90's artist .....now From the US..... Smh pitiful!

  • ???

    I accidentally witnessed a very small portion of it and......ummm just NO?

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    Now y'all know good and well, Alicia always been 3-chicken wings from being fat.

  • ihatethesebitches

  • I cAll ThE sHoTs…

    Andra Day = at least 40 (being nice)

  • Bam Bam Li

    I hated Joss stones voice lol. The rest I love, and you're right, we love our old school R&B/soul sounds. There are a lot of R&B artist that don't make the newer contemporary R&B music here which I like, tbh I stopped listening to most music around 2002/2003 lol, most things turned to utter do-do

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    So true! So true!

  • Dee

    I saw her sing on WW show. Didn't like her look, but her voice reminds me of Adele. Very talented.

  • Cricket404

    I just watched Jessie J on Youtube and had no one to share my love for her with. I loved the one where she was on the radio doing Instaoke to Nicki Minaj & B.O.B. The girl can sing, I am a fan.

  • Stan4NoOne

    Looks like this was pretty whack...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Ms.Capricorn101

  • Sassy24

    True lol

  • becauseIsaidso

    Daaang! Ya'll are goin IN on the homie Andra Day. Let's clear some things up...she's from San Diego. Does NOT look old at all! C'mon Sandra?! We can agree this isn't the most flattering picture, but still....She has some AMAAAZZZING covers/smash-ups on YouTube. Her CD was already released: Rise to the Fall. Her hit single "Rise Up" was selected by the Beats by Dre team to appear in a new campaign and Serena Williams chose the song for the US Open. She is NOT British. lol we went to High School together - San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. Shout out to SDSCPA! She has a heart of gold, is a strong Christian woman, and will not need to be compared to Rihanna cuz she ain't ratchet nor slorish. Happy listening! I will be seeing her perform at the Casbah on Wed. Go Cassandra!!

  • becauseIsaidso

    She's from San Diego. not British at all. lol

  • Aliscia Anderson

  • Delicia Rashad
