Alicia Keys Empowered and Business Minded Thanks To Oprah

Alicia Keys is capping off 2009 in a big way thanks to Daytime Emmy Award-winning diva Oprah Winfrey. In addition to releasing the anticipated album “The Element of Freedom” in December, Keys revealed plans to launch her own entertainment website and a number of other entrepreneurial ventures Wednesday. Speaking from the set of a photo shoot (for the album), Keys said her entrepreneurial spirit was turned on by the likes of Oprah and other business-minded people. “Why do I love Oprah ? Because she’s able to bring you things that will really change your life,” Keys told the AP. “They’re part of your life in a meaningful way and those are the things I want to be a part of.” Keys’ forthcoming efforts are set to be unveiled towards years end, including a handcrafted jewlery line engraved with message of hope and wisdom titled ‘The Barber’s Daughters’. Keys’ follow up to 2007’s “As I Am,” titled “The Element of Freedom,” is due in stores December 1.
