SINGER/SONGWRITER ALICIA KEYS PROTESTS FOR KIDNAPPED NIGERIAN GIRLS!

 Alicia Keys—

NEW YORK, USA (AP) — Alicia Keys held a protest in New York City to raise awareness about the 200-plus Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram militants in April.

Yesterday marked six months since the girls were abducted. Keys kicked off a protest with 30 others at the consulate general of Nigeria, holding signs that read We Are Here and Safe Schools Now!”

They chanted “Bring back our girls” as New Yorkers walked up the street during lunch hour, while others stopped to capture photos and video. Keys, who is pregnant, said in an interview that she felt touched to take action since she is a mother. Her son, Egypt, turned four yesterday.

Keys was joined at the protest by her husband, producer-rapper Swizz Beatz.
