I see Carrie Underwood out here grinding, hosting award shows, performing at concerts all throughout her first pregnancy and I think to myself, “now that’s the hardest working pregnant musician right now.”
Then, last night, I spot Alicia Keys a month and a half from her due date on stage across the pond in Glasgow, Scotland pounding on a baby grande!
I think to myself, well Keys is a true contender with all the globe trotting and bi-coastal criss crossing she has been doing this last trimester in her second pregnancy.
Above is a photo collage of 9 times, the mutli-Grammy award winning, platinum selling artist was out there grinding for causes, promoting her new single “#WeAreHere” and performing or making appearances at events worldwide.
