Keys Is A Mommy's Girl

Award-winning singer ALICIA KEYS is proud to admit she's a 'mommy's girl'.

The A WOMAN'S WORTH hitmaker attributes her worldwide chart success to her mother TERRI AUGELLO's support and parenting skills.

Alicia says, "My mom is definitely my rock. Growing up we didn't have anybody but each other to survive in the city. She really helped me to become the type of person I am; the strong-mindedness that I have is all because of her.

"I don't think she would have made it if she had been a weak person who always felt like she needed somebody in order to make it.

"she never have me that impression. She taught me to stand on my own two feet and I was always presented with a lot of obstacles."
