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.

“[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

Kind of boring — I love her but for some reason did not feel very inspired by the story. It seemed like she kind of won the success lottery and was able to veer away from the drama traps that other music talent trip on. I may finish it but demotivated to listen about halfway thru. The story doesn’t seem to have an arc.

I Loved the book! I laughed, cried, and absorbed the wisdom she shares. The relationships she has built with other artists speaks to her gift and ability to connect. This book has helped me to boost my confidence in myself, stand in my own gifts, while valuing and honoring everything and everyone around me. I love the authenticity and vulnerability of her story. I’ll be reading it again.

She needs to do a ride along with police at night in bad neighborhoods to experience the job we give them . The first 1/2 of the book is fine then she gets delusional

This talent artist is far too impressed with herself. The name dropping and goings on.... newsflash, no one really cares!

Soothing and lyrical, Alicia Keys paints a vivid picture of her life and career. I couldn't stop listening! I will absolutely be reading again. Side note: don't listen to this whole driving a long distance. TOO soothing!

I loved her from the first time she a performed on the Oprah Winfrey show, thank you Clive Davis. Even then, I felt she was wise beyond her years and after listening to her story I was right. Alisha, I am so happy for your success in the music industry, but more importantly, extremely proud of how you have used your platform to elevate the lives of so many others. I enjoyed the book immensely and have already recommended it to family and friends. Alisha has a very calming voice and having her narrate her life story was the cherry on top.

This book was all that I hoped it would be. It made me admire Alicia even more than before. I am amazed at the wisdom that she has as a young woman and thankful that she is willing to pass along all that she discovers on her journey to become more herself!
