It’s been a busy month for Alicia Keys. After snapping up five Grammys earlier this month, on Wednesday the R&B singer/songwriter, 22, added three Soul Train Awards to her growing list of accolades, the Associated Press reported. She was named female entertainer of the year, and won for best new R&B/soul or rap artist for her song “Fallin’.” Her record, “Songs in A Minor,” which has sold more than 8 million copies, was named best R&B/soul album from a female. Keys, a classically trained pianist, also won two American Music Awards in January. At the Soul Train Awards, held in L.A. Wednesday, Keys performed her song “Girlfriend.” Other Soul Train honorees included the veteran Isley Brothers, who won three awards, and late singer Aaliyah, whose song “Rock the Boat” took the award for best R&B soul single from a female. The male entertainer of the year was hip-hop great Dr. Dre. Keys is scheduled to embark on a 35-date North American tour this summer, set to kick off July 2 in Milwaukee.
