After celebrating her birthday recently, Alicia Keys has another cause to be excited over. She has been announced as the Global Creative Director for Blackberry.
The phone company is preparing to launch its long-awaited Blackberry 10 model and have chosen Alicia Keys to lead the way. According to Mashable, Alicia, who appeared at the Blackberry 10 launch event, will be working closely with Blackberry.
â€œIâ€™m fascinated by technology. I’ve always wanted to work directly with a technology company,â€ said Keys. â€œI wanted to do something where I could grow professionally and personally.â€
Keys says she is going to be working directly with developers and carriers on the platform, as well as with other artists. Previously a BlackBerry user, she spoke on stage about experimenting with other smartphone platforms over the past few years â€” she talked about being an ‘iPhone Junkie’ on Google+ just over a year ago â€” but now that BlackBerry has been “working out” she’s excited to get back together.
â€œNow were exclusively dating again, and Iâ€™m very happy,â€ she said.
Congratulations to her on the big move.
