Singer Alicia Keys, 30, says she learnt to balance parenting and work from her mother, who raised her alone. “My mother was a single mother and she balanced it and worked at it and raised me so well. There’s always a way if you have the will,” bangshowbiz.com quotes Keys as saying.
The singer, who has an eight-month-old son, Egypt, with a record producer Swizz Beatz, adds that becoming a mother has made her more aware of the thousands of parentless children in the world.
“It breaks my heart because I’m like, ‘What do they do with nobody there to support them and be with them?” she says.
