“The first half was off the chain! The second half will be even betta!” Keys said. “I’m lookin’ forward to tearin’ the house down with everyone that comes out this summer!”

Keys, who has been on the road steadily since August, wrapped her tour March 10. Between now and her summer shows, Keys will participate in LIFEbeat’s UrbanAID2 at the Beacon Theatre in New York on April 9. The event – which features Jamie Foxx, Jay-Z, and P. Diddy – is part of a campaign aimed at reaching urban communities nationwide about the urgency of battling the AIDS crisis.

The much lauded singer/songwriter picked up an impressive five Grammy Awards at the ceremony in February for her debut album, Songs In A Minor. More awards are on the way as Keys will perform and accept the Sammy Davis Entertainer of the Year award at the Soul Train Music Awards on March 25.
