Alicia Keys has been using her platform to urge her fans to vote in the upcoming presidential election next week.

And the 15-time Grammy winner recently joined America Ferrera and Kerry Washington in hosting a virtual voting event.

She teamed up with Brandi Carlile as they gave a powerful performance of their voting anthem A Beautiful Noise, closing out Global Citizen’s Every Vote Counts: A Celebration of Democracy.

The 39-year-old donned a plunging black velvet coat, as she sat at a white piano, which formed a yin-yang with Carlile’s black piano, as she matched in a white suit.

She and Carlile, 39, beautifully harmonized, as they lended their voices to an empowering tune that expresses the importance of voting. 

Keys serenaded: ‘I have a voice / Started out a whisper / Turned into a scream / Made a beautiful noise / Shoulder to shoulder / Marching in the street

‘When you’re all alone / It’s a quiet breeze / But when you band together / It’s a choir of thunder and rain / Now we have a choice / ‘Cause I have a voice.’

She took to Instagram after the performance, posing with Carlile in front of the pianos, lit by a string of bulbs hanging across a dark set.

The Smokin’ Aces actress said in a statement: ‘This song has that special energy that we really need to feel right now. Everyone has the power to make beautiful noise and to lift others up with their voice.

‘Now more than ever, we need to let those voices be heard by voting. I’m so grateful to have joined my sister Brandi Carlile, a beautiful spirit, inspiring artist and incredible person, for this moment.’

She and Carlile were joined by Brandy Clark, Linda Perry, Lori McKenna, Ruby Amanfu, Hailey Whitters and Hillary Lindsey in writing the tune.

They’ve also launched a social media challenge, urging fans to use the hashtag #ABeautifulNoise, as they hit the polls.

‘I just needed to figure out how to demand that from myself. I can’t put it over to the side and talk to it later. Once I realized that myself? I was really able to start making some moves.’
