Nov 12, 2021 Empire State of Mind: Alicia Keys Performs at Mercedes-Benz Manhattan
Last Saturday, November 6, Mercedes-Benz hosted the Mercedes-EQ Concert Experience featuring the unparalleled musician/vocalist Alicia Keys at Mercedes-Benz Manhattan in New York to celebrate the arrival of our first line of electric vehicles, Mercedes-EQ, and the launch of Alicia’s album “KEYS,” set to be released on December 10.
During the intimate and mesmerizing 60-minute show, Alicia Keys performed timeless and current hits including “Best Of Me,” “Underdog” and “Fallin’” with a jazz trio featuring Keys, an upright bass player and drummer. The backdrop to the superstar’s performance was a beautiful chandelier powered by clean, reusable energy that was previously generated at Mercedes-Benz’s US Open activation this summer. Alicia closed out the concert with her classic hit “No One,” receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.
Various high-profile guests were in attendance including fellow Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador Martha Stewart, Jason Biggs and wife Jenny Mollen, TV host Amber Ruffin, Peloton instructor Tunde Oyeneyin, model Maya Stepper and professional ballet dancer Isabella Boylston.
Additionally, Mercedes-Benz showcased the first vehicle from the Mercedes-EQ line, the all-new 2022 EQS Sedan, which officially arrives in the U.S. late this year.
