Alicia Keys performed “If I Ain’t Got You” with a first-of-its-kind global orchestra featuring women of color.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the classic song and the premiere of Netflix‘s “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story,” Keys brought together over 70 female musicians from all over the world to create a global orchestra made up entirely of women of color.
“‘If I Ain’t Got You’ re-imagined with this 70-plus piece Global Orchestra made up entirely of women of color is SOOOO crazzzy!” Keys wrote on Instagram. “I had REAL tears in my eyes when we recorded this! How does this song keep doing this? I’m so grateful to you, for loving this like I do!”
Keys, donning a Victorian-era dress, is seen walking up to a piano before she begins to sing the lyrics to her classic, as she’s joined by the regal orchestra.
The orchestra features several popular musicians from all over the world, including Ofentse Pitse from South Africa, Rimon from Netherlands, Amel Bent from France, Alicia Away from Germany, Cherrie from Sweden, and Delara from Norway. The musical arrangement was made by Bobbie-Jane Gardner.
