Less than 24 hours after debuting her new single “Girl on Fire” at the VMAs, Alicia Keys was back on stage performing at the “Stand Up to Cancer” benefit on Friday night. The R&B songstress took the stage with “Not Even the King,” a new song off her upcoming album Girl on Fire, due November 27. She debuted the powerful record earlier this year at the MTV Upfront presentation.
“This is for all the beautiful people in my life and yours who are fighting a war against cancer, and suddenly all that matters is love. I pray that we win,” said Keys while seated at the piano.
