Grammy Awards singer-songwriter Alicia Keys has shared some throwback photo of herself and musical icon Prince to honor the late musician five years after his death on her Twitter page.
In April 2016, at the age of 57, Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park home and recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Prince sold over 150 million records worldwide, ranking him among the best-selling music artists of all time.
On Wednesday, Alicia Keys took to Twitter and honored the late musician with a beautiful tirbute. She shared some throwback photos from the 50th annual Grammy Awards show.
Here’s what Alicia Keys wrote:
“Can’t believe it’s been 5 years. You are forever unforgettable!!”

Back on 2016, Alicia recalled the first time she spoke with the legendary singer, asking for permission to include his song on her album. She admitted to the crowd. At around age 19 and on her very first tour, she waited for Prince’s phone call in a hotel room, which sounds easier said than done.
Here’s what she said:
“I felt nervous in a way I had never felt nervous before. [It’s been] incredible to know him as much as one can know Prince, which is really at least 8 people in between.”
