I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

Alicia Keys …. “💞🎼 ‘Grammys 2019’ …. Sings Songs She Wishes She Wrote …. Two Pianos 🎼💞 …. “!!

ALICIA KEYS AT THE GRAMMYS 2019

This year, I made it a point to record the 61st Grammy Awards. The main reason was because Alicia Keys was going to be the host.

She didn’t disappoint, at least not this star-struck fan.

And then … she performed playing to pianos at the same time … as an homage to Hazel Dorothy Scott (June 11, 1920 – October 2, 1981) was a Trinidadian-born jazz and classical pianist, singer and actor.

I’ve looked for but haven’t found a YouTube video with the full performance. Seems the Recording Academy keeps the videos in a very safe place.

I’ve only found the videos included below.

I loved it!!

Midway into the 2019 Grammy Awards, the show’s host, Alicia Keys, sang a medley of songs that she wished she’d written. She kicked it off by playing Scott Joplin’s “The Maple Leaf Rag” on two grand pianos, one black, one white, sitting between them on a stool. “I wanna welcome you to Club Keys,” she said.

“I’ve been thinking so much about the people and the music that have inspired me, and I want to give a shout out to Hazel Scott because I always wanted to play two pianos. But back to the music. You know those songs that live inside of you and live inside of me, and you just love it so much, because it was done so well that you wish you wrote it. That’s how I feel about these songs. I wish I wrote ’em.”

When it comes to hits, though, Keys doesn’t have much to complain about. Over the course of her career, she’s been nominated for 29 Grammys, and she’s won 15 of them.

In 2001, her first year of eligibility, she won five, including Best New Artist, three for the song “Fallin‘” and one for Best R&B Album, Songs in A Minor. She won four in 2004, two in 2007 and on it has gone. Her most recent win was for Best R&B Album in 2013 for Girl on Fire.

Her most recent nomination was in 2014, when she was an Album of the Year contender for her contributions to Pharrell Williams’ Girl, but it lost to Beck’s Morning Phase.

BWNotes

Hazel Dorothy Scott (June 11, 1920 – October 2, 1981) was a Trinidadian-born jazz and classical pianist, singer and actor; she also performed as herself in several films.

Born in Port of Spain, Hazel was taken at the age of four by her mother to New York City. Recognized early as a musical prodigy, Scott was given scholarships from the age of eight to study at the Juilliard School. She began performing in a jazz band in her teens and was performing on radio at age 16.

She was prominent as a jazz singer throughout the 1930s and 1940s. In 1950, she became the first black person to have a TV show, The Hazel Scott Show,[1] featuring a variety of entertainment. Her career in America faltered after she testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee during the McCarthy era. Scott subsequently moved to Paris in the late 1950s and performed in France, not returning to the United States until 1967.

Alicia Keys performs onstage during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on February 10, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

~Alicia Keys plays medley with 2 pianos at the Grammys~

~~Published on Feb 11, 2019~~

From the very first moment she took the Grammys stage, host Alicia Keys made it clear the night would be about paying tribute to music.

And it was Keys herself who delivered one of the most powerful performances of the night – with a medley that included classics from five different decades.

Sat between two pianos, the 38-year-old songstress wowed the audience at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Sunday as she began to play them both at the same time.
