Unthinkable!

My girl Alicia Keys' single "Unthinkable" debuted on BET's 106 & Park yesterday. The video was NOTHING like I expected, but in true AKeys' fashion, and as her "Element of Freedom" cd suggests, expect the unexpected.
This is one of my FAVE songs!
Here's the video (thanks to Masta Lee and Essence)...

She is absolutely stunning in this video with her curvy self  - u go Alicia!

And speaking of stunning, I was saddened to hear about the death of Ms. Lena Horne. I had no idea she was 92!!!!
She was the first black performer to sign a deal in Hollywood. She was straight outta Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
Beautiful...classic...sophisticated...talented....singer.....actress...civil rights activist...icon...trailblazer...and so much more. People like Ms. Horne just 'wow' you.
My friend and music mentor, Ann Ruckert, raves about James Gavin's book called "Stormy Weather: The Life of Lena Horne", I am yet to read it but definitely going to make it a priority!
Supposedly Oprah is going to produce the biopic on Ms. Horne, and Alicia is set to play lead! I am SO looking forward to that.
