Alicia Keys reveals in ‘The anthill’ that Barack Obama “sings great”

Alicia Keys was returning after a long time to The anthill, although this time it was connecting by video call from the United States. The singer attended the program to present her biography, which will be published on June 16 in Spain, although More myself: mi viaje is now available in English.

The night began with technical problems to connect with the guest, who was at her home in New York. Despite the difficulties, Pablo Motos managed to start chatting with the winner of 15 Grammy awards.

The guest explained that she prefers not to call her book memories because “she likes the term trip better because we are all on our journey and because I think of something that is going to continue.” In addition, he also has the testimony of friends and family who talk about his life.

Alicia has become an icon of music, especially for her piano, an instrument that came into her life thanks to a neighbor in her building. “He had a piano that could not be carried and he offered it to my mother, for me it was my great first opportunity. The piano is like my great friend, I adore it, it helps me connect with others,” he explained.

His passion for the keys was so great that he signed his first record contract thanks to one: “I was very young, I was only 15 years old, there was a beautiful piano and they told me that if I signed they would give it to me, I said yes quickly” . Luckily for the singer, she had a good manager by her side who made sure the conditions were correct.

Alicia Keys has always been known for her commitment to social causes, so she always takes advantage of the great speaker she has thanks to her fame. The fight against HIV is one of his great goals, so he does not hesitate to even meet with the president of the United States if necessary.

Pablo Motos wanted to know more about the dinner he had with Barack Obama and Bono, singer of U2. “He invited us to talk about a project on retrovirals for Africa. I thought it was a crazy life … Bono started playing the guitar and the president sang and sings great, he has style, he has attitude.”

After the talk with the singer, it was time for the usual current affairs gathering on Thursdays, in which the star is usually Tamara Falcó with her unfiltered statements. To the surprise of the spectators, the Countess of Griñón again did not attend, something that the presenter wanted to clarify quickly.

To avoid rumors, as in previous weeks, Motos made it clear that the absence of Isabel Preysler’s daughter was due to the fact that she was preparing for exams at the cooking school in which she is training. Next Thursday it is to be expected that the gathering will return to its usual place.

To finish, the spectators could see how the team said goodbye until Tuesday and not until next Monday. On the occasion of the start of Euro 2021, The anthill will avoid being measured against the matches of the national team, which debuts next Monday at 9:00 p.m. on Telecinco.
