American musician Alicia Keys took to social media to talk about how she started out in music and how she's grateful to be where she is now. Alicia only started making music in her bedroom in Harlem but that paved the way to becoming a superstar.
"The room was so small, she sat on the bed and played the keyboard piano trying to come up with songs that matched the feelings in her heart," wrote Alicia.
The singer-songwriter said that she tried really hard to find her voice in that small room in New York, never giving up and keeping her eyes on the prize.

She then thanked her fans for their support. Alicia knows that without them, she wouldn't be here and she appreciates their love so much.
"You are the reason and I thank you deeply for helping me go from this bedroom to the entire world!" she finished off.
