Pregnant Alicia Keys falls onstage at Essence Music Festival but baby is doing fine
A pregnant Alicia Keys left audience members gasping when she took a tumble this weekend while performing at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
While singing “Love is Blind” on Saturday, the Grammy-award winner stumbled backward and fell, landing on her behind.
Despite the audience’s reponse, Keys didn’t miss a beat. The 29-year-old singer got right back on her feet and continued singing, although she finished out the song at a nearby piano.
The 2010 Essence Music Festival began on Friday and lasted for three days with performances by Janet Jackson, Monica, Estelle, LL Cool J and Trey Songz.
The event was one of the Keys’ last gigs before she takes her unofficial maternity leave, reported E! Online.
