We are Here - Alicia Keys
As she prepares for the birth of her second child, Alicia Keys is in a reflective mood.
The superstar musician has just released a new song. The song is titled “We are Here“. It seems as though Alicia is pushing #WeareHere as a movement. So far, Pharrell and Alicia have shared photos showing their thoughts on it.

Listen and read the Alicia’s thoughts below.

The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here.” Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before.
As I prepare to give birth to a new child, I can’t help and think about the world I’m bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice – we just need to know how to make it heard.
I have a vision that I believe is more than a dream, that I know can be our reality.
I believe in an empowered world community built on the true meaning of equality – where we are all considered one people, regardless of race, religion, gender, zip code, belief system or sexual orientation.
I believe all of our voices should be heard, so that our representation reflects our population. We need our leadership to reflect an equal balance of the gifts that both men and women have to offer.
I believe in a world where every child born receives a quality education – where their unique gifts are nurtured so that they may be a beneficial presence in this world.
I believe in mutual respect and cooperation among all peoples and all nations. It is time to end all forms of racial injustice for our black brothers and sisters and all people of color.
I believe in an end to the prison industrial complex in America and a renewed justice system that is based on fairness and truth.
I believe in universal global health care based on Integrative Medicine, so that our bodies are acknowledged and treated as one system, and we can help control the spread of diseases like AIDS, Malaria, TB and Ebola.
I believe we have an ability to end poverty, oppression, and hopelessness that often breeds despair, terror, and violence.
I believe in common sense gun laws that serve to protect children and families and society from unnecessary violence.
I believe in Peace & Love & Unity.
I believe that this vision can be a reality.
And, it’s not about me. It’s about WE.
Together we can give birth to a kinder and more peaceful world for ALL children.
Our souls were brought together so that we can love each other sister, brother. We Are Here. We are here for all of us. That’s why #WeAreHere.
Sent with Light,
Alicia Keys

    If you really want to change the world, be nicer to those working hard to conceal your acne ridden skin (yes boo we have the tea on you) and ask the US to stop funding and orchestrating wars everydamnwhere! Chineke!!!! everybody and their mamas want to be “inspirational” nowadays smh

    I just hope its not one of those songs that fit the moment, capitalizing on what’s going on so that it sells more…#cynical#

    I love, very apt, my new best song…at least some can pass a strong message thru their music (as against anaconda bla bla at this time). biko what’s the scoop on what AK did to Koenigin to warrant such venom?! the song I think is for ALL, for each one to do something positive to make the world better, whether as individuals, states, or nations. u know, little drops of positivity in the scary world of today. we need these kinds of songs ‘for the moment’ to help us get thru..

    You really could have done better than this. She is actually one of the good ones particular in reference to the AIDS and AIDS’ orphan cause. In the past, she has stood to petition her government and other governments to do right too.
    If you do have evidence/can cite reports of her being horrid to staff/stylists/MUAs, please quote. But this seems to be quite a cheap shot by you.

    Did I hear “let’s talk about Nigeria? ” Ah ah, we have finally enterrit.

    I like how the song is supposed to be a reflective song yet is instantly uplifting. It has an upbeat, happy sound not like those sad reflective songs.
