Alicia Keys net worth has always been a big question to the fifteen-time Grammy Award winner fans. For one thing, Alicia Keys has been nothing but excellent in her craft, releasing one hit song after the other consistently.

Alicia Keys nee Alicia Augello Cook is a singer, songwriter, pianist and actress who began to bask under the limelight at the young age of four when she appeared on 'The Cosby Show,' where she showcased her talent in playing the piano.

Her performance won her an enrolment to the elite Professional Performance Arts School of Manhattan where she then graduated as valedictorian at the age of sixteen.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Keys pursued her music career when she decided to leave college. She then started to engage into a musical stint with Columbia and Artista Records, and this marked the time when Alicia Keys net worth officially blossomed.

In 2001, Keys released her debut album 'Songs in A Minor,' which garnered the number one position in the Billboard 200 and has sold more than twelve million copies all over the world. Now that's a lot of money to add to Alicia Keys' net worth for sure.

However, her instant fame didn't stop there as she was named the best R&B artist that year, and the album received five Grammy Awards the following year.

Following her debut album were two equally successful albums, 'The Diary of Alicia Keys' and 'As I Am,' which also landed top spot on the USA Billboard 200 and received multi-platinum status.

According to The Richest, Alicia Key's net worth continued to rise when her 'Diary of Alicia Keys' album sold eight million copies all over the world and won four Grammy Awards.

Keys has sold 65 million records worldwide as of late; thus, in 2010, she was hailed as one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time by VH1.

Meanwhile, aside from her musical career, Keys also explored the acting industry, and she even made remarkable performances in television shows such as 'American Dreams' and 'Charmed and The Backyardigans.' Her film credits include 'The Nanny Diaries' and 'The Secret Life of Bees.'
