An AudioFile Earphones Award-winning production 

This program is read by Alicia Keys, with special guest appearances by family and friends, including Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, and Michelle Obama.

An intimate, revealing look at one artist’s journey from self-censorship to full expression

As one of the most celebrated musicians in the world, Alicia Keys has enraptured the globe with her heartfelt lyrics, extraordinary vocal range, and soul-stirring piano compositions. Yet away from the spotlight, Alicia has grappled with private heartache - over the challenging and complex relationship with her father, the people-pleasing nature that characterized her early career, the loss of privacy surrounding her romantic relationships, and the oppressive expectations of female perfection.

Since Alicia rose to fame, her public persona has belied a deep personal truth: She has spent years not fully recognizing or honoring her own worth. After withholding parts of herself for so long, she is at last exploring the questions that live at the heart of her story: Who am I, really? And once I discover that truth, how can I become brave enough to embrace it?

More Myself is part autobiography, part narrative documentary. Alicia’s journey is revealed not only through her own candid recounting, but also through vivid recollections from those who have walked alongside her. The result is a 360-degree perspective on Alicia’s path, from her girlhood in Hell’s Kitchen and Harlem to the process of growth and self-discovery that we all must navigate.

In More Myself, Alicia shares her quest for truth - about herself, her past, and her shift from sacrificing her spirit to celebrating her worth. With the raw honesty that epitomizes Alicia's artistry, More Myself is at once a riveting account and a clarion call to listeners: To define themselves in a world that rarely encourages a true and unique identity.

A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books 

"[Alicia Keys] often sings snippets of her music, which brings her story to life and elevates the listening experience. Spoken cameos from everyone from her husband to Michelle Obama add another layer of interest to the audiobook. Keys fans will be delighted by the behind-the-scenes stories she shares; those unfamiliar with her music will still enjoy her upbeat, unpretentious narration." (Booklist)

Enjoyable

Listening to this audiobook was a real treasure for many reasons. Alicia Keys’ voice was such a pleasure to listen to as she told her story. And there were introductions to each section by important people in her life in their own voices and that was really special.
The book is the story of her life, and naturally scattered throughout are various lessons she learned. I have such great respect for Alicia, what she stands for, and her genuine nature. But I have to say this book felt a little on the light side with regards to insights. I guess I thought it would go deeper.
However, as I said, it was a great book to listen to you and interesting to see the perspective of someone coming up in the music industry.

Highly Recommend - I love Alicia Keys even more !

I really enjoyed this!! Alicia Keys’ childhood has hints of my own, so in a way it was super cathartic but then as she gets in to her journey these AMAZING stories of humanitarianism and her own spiritual growth come out. She is an amazing human being. A true touched by God type of talent and a heart of gold in all the activism she does. I especially liked how the people who are close to her pitch in and give tiny cameos. Loved this book. Highly recommend!!!

Eye Opening

Not only is this a beautifully told story of Alicia's growth as a person, it's an eye opening reflection on individuality. I have always been a huge fan of Alicia's music and her various endeavours but I can now truly say that I respect Alicia not only as an artist but as a mother, a daughter, a wife a sister and a friend. You won't regret listening to or reading this book.

Boring Humble-brag

This is obviously her memoir, so the book is her truth but I found it to be a bit obnoxious. Which I did not expect. She talks about her troubles and wanting to be as grounded as she can be, while talking about going to extravagant locations to do so and name dropping huge celebrities. It felt very out out of touch to me. Considering all the yachts, extravagant travel and celebrity mentions, it was just long and boring. First book in a while that I didn't feel like finishing. I did. it never got better.

Alicia unfolded

I enjoy this work especially the performance, hearing a bio by the author is great. I learnt so much about Alicia and loved hearing that is her voice.

Title should be Safe Version of Myself

I like A Keys but I found her sharing very little of herself in this title. Yes, she admitted she was promiscusous at a young age and how she got her record deal but she's so safe the entire book and I was listening to a person perfect go through her perfect adult life. It didn't sound authentic when she described how she met Swiss and did not mention any of the controversy surrounding her beginnings with him when it was daily news fodder. In passing she mentions his other kids (5) in total. Only thing I was surprised about was her relationship with Kerry her first live in boyfriend and their age gap. She's a hard worker and I enjoyed all the mentions about her trip to Egypt but this story was very bland. Her voice has changed so much but I am happy for her journey but this story came off cookie cutter. On a CVD-19 scale of audio book readings, I give it 2 out of 5 masks.

I wait

She ignores the infidelity. Why? Swizz , we all know was married when she met him. If you are writing about your journey, how is it that this main event in your life gets ignored? Smh in disappointment. It’s your truth I thought I would hear.

Disappointed

Hmmmm....I will start with how much I enjoyed learning of Alicia's early life. I felt such an openness from her as she allowed us into places we'd never go had she not let us in. I found that the closer we got to Alicia the star, the more surface her story became which made for many boring chapters. It is her life...her story to tell, but why write a book if you're going to gloss over things that have been publicized and not correct or elaborate on them? I found that to be quite disappointing which made this book average at best for me.

RIVETING!!

I absolutely love Alicia's words, the way she describes her struggles, her triumphs and her experiences. I loved how she would sing and that she had other people relevant to her journey narrate some parts. I loved it!!
