Keys reassured her lovers and instructed audience to not fear. “This tale has a in reality glad finishing.”
“As a result of John mentioned, ‘I agree, Alicia, this must were yours,'” she mentioned. “And he actually broke the Grammy and wrote, ‘If I Ain’t Were given You’ with my title on it and gave it to me.”
