MANILA, PHILIPPINES (ASSOCIATED PRESS) — Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys visited a Philippine air force base Monday to bring cheer to hundreds of evacuees from eastern provinces wracked by Typhoon Haiyan.
The R&B star was in Manila for a concert Monday at the seaside MOA Arena. The Philippine Star earlier quoted her as saying that "music has a way of lifting your spirit and that's what I hope to do for the Filipino people."
Keys tweeted three days after the Nov. 8 typhoon: "To the people of the Philippines my heart is with you." She also encouraged fans around the world to donate to the typhoon victims.
