R+B superstar Alicia Keys almost became ALICIA WILD when she was searching
for a fitting stage name.
The FALLIN' singer, who was christened ALICIA COOK, decided she wanted a
professional name that summed up her piano-playing skills early in her career,
and now she's glad she chose Keys.
She explains, "We were searching for a good description - something that
had a description of who I am and what I do and we came up with a whole bunch
of really bad names.
"The worst was... ALICIA WILD. That sounds like a stripper."
