Alicia Keys contemplating adopting child from Africa
London: Singer Alicia Keys has revealed that should she and her fiancé producer Swizz Beatz ever want to extend their family, they would consider adopting a child from Africa.
Keys, 29, who is pregnant, has seen first hand how the children in Africa are suffering, after co-founding her own charity Keep A Child Alive, which has helped 250,000 of Africa’s young people affected by Aids.
She is so moved by the plight of the young people robbed of their parents and potential by Aids that, should she and Beatz ever wish to extend their family they would consider adopting an African child.
“Adopting is definitely not out of the question. I would love to figure out the ways that could work for me,’ a news daily quoted her as saying.
“I felt I wanted to scoop up the children I met in Africa and take them home. At this point I kinda feel I have amazing brothers and sisters in Africa.
“Hopefully I can be their big sister who they know they can depend on and will always be there, fighting for them,” she added.
