If you happened to be walking through New York City’s Times Square last night and, oh, you happened to score a ticket to singer Alicia Keys’ surprise concert then you no doubt enjoyed a phenomenal night of music and a whole lot of love for the Big Apple. Aside from the whole surprise angle of the “pop up” concert, Alicia welcomed musical guests Jay Z and Nas on stage—a gesture we’re sure the hometown crowd loved. Nas performed “One Love” while Alicia and Jay Z launched into a memorable performance of “Empire State of Mind.” From a hairstyle angle, we also saw Alicia officially turn the spotlight squarely on the headscarf trend (a look she’s been rocking recently) by flaunting her Natural curls big, bold and beautiful…accented with a colorful knotted headband scarf.
