“I am honored she chose to share her personal story through my imprint”, says Oprah.

Captioning her reflection on Instagram of Alicia, Oprah writes, “I remember the first time Alicia Keys was on The Oprah Show and she hit that note in “Fallin” and I knew right then and there she was special.” “She just carries the light with her and I have deep admiration and love for her. In her new book More Myself, she reveals the struggles, the insecurities, and the joys to becoming more herself,” she continues.

In a humble video announcement of her book release publication with Oprah Winfrey, the talented singer shares with her audience how she is thankful for the opportunity given by her mentor and guide. “I can NOT believe this is happening!! I am literally in disbelief!! My sister, mentor, guide and the QUEEN herself Ms. Oprah helped me share my journey with you!” “Thank you, Ms. O for the opportunity to share my truth as the first release of your new book imprint” continues Alicia.

In a form of gratitude, Alicia Keys shares with her audience via Instagram an audio excerpt from Michelle Obama. The former First Lady praises Keys for her unique talent, humbleness, and tenacity to grow in an audio excerpt from the pages of the book.
