Despite the haters, Alicia Keys is still going make-up free, and even got Tamron Hall to join her on the “Today” show. Keys appeared on the show Friday morning to perform the tracks “In Common” from her sixth studio album, and her new song “Back To Life” from the upcoming flick “Queen of Katwe.”
Before her set, Keys sat down with the hosts and talked about writing the song for the film, and her no-make-up empowerment campaign. “It’s about being who you are, and not letting anybody tell you who you should be,” said Keys who even got the hosts to take off their make up.
After the show Hall posted the photo below on her Instagram with the caption: “Thank you @aliciakeys Gracious and eternally positive. Your no makeup decision is not about a product as you said this morning. Proud to share space with you and to have a substantive conversation.”
“Queen of Katwe” hits theaters September 23rd. In the meantime check out this featurette featuring Keys discussing “Back to Life.”
