“Being a part of VH1 Storytellers was such a fun and fulfilling experience,” said Keys. “It allowed me to do what I love most when I perform, and that’s interacting with the audience and getting to share a little more with them in an intimate setting. There’s a story behind every song—and now I’ve been able to really tell a few of them.”
Filmed and recorded at NYC’s Metropolis Studios, Keys’ VH1 Storytellers originally aired on the network November 12, 2012. Similar to the one-hour special, Keys performs and reveals the humorous and heartfelt stories behind the creation of some of her most popular hits including “No One,” “Fallin’,” “You Don’t Know My Name,” in addition to new music from her latest album, Girl On Fire.

The album’s first single and title track, “Girl On Fire,” has sold over 1.5 million in track downloads.
Since the 2001 release of her monumental debut album, songs in A minor, Keys has built an unparalleled repertoire of hits and accomplishments with more than 30 million albums and 25 million singles sold worldwide.
