Alicia Keys was born Alicia Augello Cook on January 25, 1981. She is a singer-songwriter, record producer, and actress. Keys' mother is of Italian, Scottish, and Irish descent and her father is an African American. According to Keys, she has always been comfortable with her biracial heritage. At the age of 7 she began playing the piano and learned about such classical composers as : Beethoven, Mozart, and Chopin. Keys attended the Professional Performing Arts School at the age of 12 and began writing songs at 14. She graduated 4 years later at the age of 16 as the valedictorian. Besides winning numerous awards and selling over 30 million albums Keys is also the co-founder and Global Ambassador of Keep a Child Alive. It is a non-profit organization that provides medicine for families with HIV and AIDS in Africa. Alicia Keys is more than just an entertainer she is also someone that cares about the welfare of others. This is why she is an inspiration to me.

If you follow my blog posts you won't be surprised that my favorite multiracial celebrity is Blake Griffin. To start with, he is a great dunker and has won the NBA Slam Dunk contest! He was the first pick in the NBA draft and plays for the L.A. Clippers. He's been an All Star and Rookie of the Year. He makes funny commercials especially the ones for Kia. Have you seen them? He founded Dunking for Dollars and donates $100 to fight childhood obesity for every dunk he makes. He also has a fund-raising site called Team Blake, in honor of his friend who died from Hodgkin's lymphoma.  And he has a black dad and white mom, just like me.
