Alicia Keys is giving fans free online access to her New York show.
The Empire State Of Mind star is performing at the famed Apollo Theatre, and those who can't get tickets for the actual show can see the whole gig online at www.billboardlive.com
Alicia will be joined by surprise guests as she performs hits from her latest album The Element Of Freedom.
The songstress takes on special powers in the music video for her new single, Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart.
She said of the video: "I have the blessing of having this ability to bring things back to life, or heal something when it's sick or make it better if it's hurt, and as much of a blessing as it is, it's also a curse because I can't physically touch anyone that I love as it'll have the opposite effect," she told Billboard.com
The video focuses on the loneliness of her character, as she grapples with her powers.
"I wanted to bring you into the world of the loneliness with the person, so why am I sleeping with a broken heart? Because I can't sleep with the one I want to be with," she said.
