Keys’ hopes for her sons

Alicia Keys wants her sons to grow up thinking everyone is equal, irrespective of race or gender.

The If I Ain’t Got You hitmaker — who has Egypt, seven, and Genesis, three, with her husband Swizz Beatz — wants her children to have the “pride of their history and their ancestry”.

She told Variety’s Power of Women issue: “I want (my sons) to grow up in a world where they would never think twice that boys are better than girls — or that black is better than white. And yet I also want them to have the pride of their history and their ancestry, because when we know our individuality we can really have empathy and feel strong.”

Meanwhile, Alicia previously revealed she is “even more in love” with her husband every day.
