January 30th, 2013 by Christen
Alicia Keys was named Blackberry Global Creative Director earlier today.
The performer was introduced on stage during the company’s BlackBerry 10 launch in New York.
“Alicia Keys has come to BlackBerry because she believes in the product and technology, and subscribes to our overriding philosophy to ‘Keep Moving’: to empower people through mobile computing and communications,” said BlackBerry President and CEO Thorsten Heins
in a statement.
He added, “We are excited she will be bringing to us her enormous capabilities, as well as a vast network of relationships in the entertainment, social media and business communities, to help shape our brand and grow our business.”
“In her new role, Alicia will work closely with app developers, content creators, retailers, carriers and the entertainment community to further shape and enhance the BlackBerry 10 platform, and inspire creative use through its remarkable capabilities and functionality,” reads a statement on Keys’ website.
It continues, “From music to books, to film, to apps, Keys will lead the charge of enhancing entertainment consumption and distribution, through the power of BlackBerry 10.”
It took no time for Alicia Keys to jump on Twitter and share the news with her fans...
The new Blackberry Z10 will undoubtedly be in the palm of Alicia's hands in her next appearances (which will include singing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl this weekend)... but will she really get rid of her iPhone? I'm sure the paparazzi would love to get their hands on a shot of Alicia jamming out to 'Girl On Fire' with her iPhone...LOL...
