Wednesday Woman

Welcome to this week's edition of Wednesday Woman.

Today I'm spotlighting a woman who has captured the music world, but also dips her feet into Hollywood as well.

Yes, I'm talking about the one and only Alicia Keys.

Sassy, soulful Ms. Keys hails from the musical mecca of New York City.

With the debut of her first album, Songs In A Minor, Alicia was thrust into the world of stardom with the acquirement of five Grammys.

Her second album, Diary, won four Grammys.

With the music industry clamoring to get a piece of Alicia's action it's no surprise she has decided to try her hand at acting.

At the age of 5, Alicia played a bit part on the Cosby Show in the episode titled, Slumber Party. I remember this episode because I was a huge Rudy fan back in the day. Hey don't hate.

Years later Alicia has gone on to perform on TV shows like Charmed, American Dreams, and the Backyardigans.

Recently Alicia has appeared in Smokin Aces, The Nanny Diaries and the upcoming, The Secret Life of Bees starring Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning.

Although, no one can ever predict the success or failure of a singer turned actress, it's clear that Alicia Keys hits all the right notes on or off the screen.
