Alicia Keys now joins the ranks of the tech savvy stars with downloadable applications.

The Girl On Fire singer says it was the birth of her son that inspired her latest project. ”I thought how cool it would be to be a part of something that really allows them to hear music from different places, different cultures, different backgrounds, different sounds…There’s games that you uncover, there’s rewards, there’s really something that you’ve never seen before. So I’m in love with it. It’s crazy,” she explains.
