Watch Alicia Keys Close DNC Day Two With Electrifying ‘Superwoman’

Musician calls for party unity, end to bigotry, fear before rendition of new song, “In Common”

Alicia Keys closed out night two of the Democratic National Convention with fitting, soulful performances of her 2007 cut, “Superwoman,” and her new song, “In Common.”

Standing at an upright piano, Keys plucked out the opening notes to “Superwoman” and proclaimed, “Women are the answer, we have the power to ensure this country gets on the right path.” The musician also dedicated the song to the Mothers of the Movement — a group of mothers who have lost their children to gun and police violence, and addressed the DNC earlier — and called for an end to gun violence in America.

After finishing the track with a bombastic diva vocal run, Keys called for party unity and took a subtle jab at Donald Trump, saying, “We can’t let politics divide us. We have to show that bigotry and fear will never win, because we have so much in common.” Keys then breezed through the understated, Latin-infused “In Common,” which will appear on her upcoming sixth album.

Keys was among several big names that appeared at the DNC Tuesday, along with Meryl Streep, Bill Clinton, Andra Day, Lena Dunham, America Ferrera and Elizabeth Banks.

Alicia Keys spoke about about Donald Trump isn’t the “law and order” candidate on a panel near the DNC in Philadelphia.
