Alicia Keys Searches For Background

Eleven-time Grammy award winner Alicia Keys is looking to find a new background singer through her MySpace page. The lucky winner will get a chance to tour with her as part of the worldwide Lexus Presents Alicia Keys As I Am tour.

People interested are asked to submit a 30 second or longer video of them singing an original song acapella to Alicia Keys’ Myspace page. Qualifications include being a female between the ages 21-30 with R&B/Soul singing experience. Contestant must also have a valid passport, and must be physically fit and able to dance. Deadline for submissions is May 5. A winner will be selected around May 15.

Ignited by her first two hit singles “No One” and “Like You’ll Never See Me Again,” Keys’ internationally-acclaimed third studio album As I Am (MBK/J Records), has sold over 5 million copies worldwide since its November 2007 release.  The disc has claimed the #1 spot for several non-consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart and the single “No One,” earned Keys two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Song and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.   Additionally, Keys received four awards at the NAACP Image Awards and was honored at the first annual BET Honors ceremony.
