Who is Alicia Keys’ vocal coach?
Alicia Keys is one of those artists that never regrets having chosen to study. Otherwise, life would have been very different for her.
In 2007 just about the time when she was going to start her European tour, she had lost her voice and was forced to call Ron Anderson for his expertise. The minute Ron landed in Paris was magical as his technical skill immediately opened her voice back up, and she was ready to go. Ever since Alicia Keys has never looked back and has been preparing for every show and every tour with Ron Anderson and his Voixtek method, making them long time friends and as she calls him, her savior.
My good friend Ron Anderson is one of the most incredible people that I have ever met. Not only is he wonderful, beautiful-hearted, and a great individual, but I have to say that he is by far one of the most incredible vocal doctors in the whole world. He is an incredible vocal coach. I will never forget the first time that I met him. I basically had no choice but to bring him in, because I was starting my tour in Europe and I had no voice.
Ron Anderson vocal tips for Alicia Keys how to use her voice better
Starting a tour with no voice is not really the move. He came in and he really started to teach me about my voice. He gave me the knowledge and the education and the understanding about what it really takes to utilize your voice in the best way so that you are not straining it, you are not overusing it, you’re really properly placing it. These are things that no one ever showed me before.
And when he came after a matter of a couple of days, we were really able to bring my voice back. We helped my voice get stronger, we helped my registers get higher.
Now anytime that I do a tour I bring him out so that so we can get started on the right foot and really create the best use of my voice possible so that I can be in this game for the next 50 years. That’s my plan. And I know with him as my coach, I would definitely get this. I really love the guy, I absolutely love Ron. He is really the true word of a teacher, cause he has taught me so much about my voice.
Thank you for helping me to grow and get better.
Who is Alicia Keys? Girl from New York with a great love for music
Alicia Keys (born January 25, 1981) is an American singer, pianist, songwriter, and producer. Currently, she is one of the most favored American singers. She became interested in music very early, already in her childhood. The world quickly recognized her talent as well. At the age of four, she took part in The Cosby Show as a member of a dance and vocal group. Soon after, she started learning to play the piano. Simultaneously, she attended several classes, both music, and dance. At the age of 12, she enrolled in the Professional Performing Arts School in New York. Keys joined the local school choir. It was also the time when she started writing her first lyrics and songs. After graduation, the artist wanted to continue studies at university. However, it coincided with a contract offer from Colombia Records. For this reason, Alicia dropped university out and, at the age of 16, focused on her musical career.
The first single, first album, and one of the biggest successes in the history of music
Unfortunately, the cooperation with Colombia Records was not going well. It was principally because the singer could not implement her musical ideas there. After several years of unsuccessful collaboration, Keys recorded her debut album Songs In A Minor in 2001 under the label of J Records. The album debuted at the top of the Billboard chart in the United States. The singles “Fallin’ ” and “A Woman’s Worth” became the breakthrough hits. Thanks to them, the artist received five Grammy Awards. Alicia’s second album, The Diary Of Alicia Keys (2003), was similarly successful, selling over 8 million copies all over the world. In 2005, MTV invited Keys to play a concert from the Unplugged series. A year later, Keys received an award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame organization that honors outstanding songwriters. In turn, in early 2007, the singer’s film debut, the criminal comedy Smokin’ Aces, had its premiere.
15 Grammy Awards so far. Do we need to say more?
The artist’s success streak did not diminish. In 2007, she released another album As I Am, for which she received three Grammy Awards a year later. Until today, each subsequent album of the artist collects many awards, including those for the best singles. At the same time, Alicia took up activities in other fields. Among others, she started cooperation with Reebok, for which she designed her model of sneakers. She also became the CEO of the enterprise software company Blackberry. Soon after (2016), the singer became a vocal coach in the American TV show The Voice. The singer also conducts a rich social and philanthropic activity. In 2018, she announced the founding of the non-profit organization “She Is the Music.” Its task is supporting and mentoring young women in the music industry. Alicia has a deep, wide-ranging voice. She has never concealed it as the result of her work with a professional vocal coach Ron Anderson.
