Alicia Keys Covers January 2013 Issue of Essence Magazine
Singer Alicia Keys covers the January 2013 issue of Essence. Alicia launched her new album, Girl on Fire, and a new look in 2012. This fit will with the "renewal" theme of the January Essence issue.
Essence Editor-at-large Emil Wilbekin says, "Our January issue is all about renewal and detoxing your life and really how you move things forward. Alicia Keys has her new album, Girl on Fire, and so she was perfect. She just cut her hair. She's got a new post baby body. It just felt right to star the new year off with Alicia, but to do her in a new and fresh way for Essence.
