R&B singer Alicia Keys gave fans a scare over the weekend after falling at the Essence Music Festival in Louisiana.
According to reports, the pregnant singer fell while performing "Love Is Blind" in New Orleans.
Alicia Keys may sing about "Fallin'," but this time she really did it. The pregnant songstress fell backwards while performing "Love Is Blind" at the ESSENCE Music Festival on Saturday (July 3). But Ms. Keys kept it moving, getting right back up and playing the piano. A concertgoer can be heard asking, "Did she mean to do that?" Now that's when you know you're a true pro! (Rap-Up)
Speculation on why she fell has circulated online.
Alicia Keys reportedly fell while performing at the Essence Music Festival in Louisiana. A witness told Media Take Out that Keys had been wearing high heels and had trouble keeping her balance through the duration of the performance. "She had on high heels and never seemed to have her balance all night. And as she was walking across the stage she slipped and fell," revealed the insider. (Examiner)
She also performed during last week's "BET Awards 10" ceremony in California.
Last week, Keys made Prince, along with the millions watching at home, raise an eyebrow and lean toward the edge of his seat when she climbed on top of the piano during her performance of the Purple One's hit 'Adore.' (The Boom Box)
Confirmation on her pregnancy and engagement to producer Swizz Beatz was revealed in May.
Alicia Keys is in a motherhood state of mind: She's pregnant with her first child. The Grammy Award-winning R&B singer has been dating producer Swizz Beatz, who has written hits for Beyonce (bee-AHN'-say), Jay-Z and others. They're engaged to be married at a private ceremony later this year. Representatives for the couple confirmed the news Thursday night. (Associated Press)
