*Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention in NYC celebrated prominent women at the Sheraton in NYC on Thursday, including Mika Brzezinski, Stacey Abrams, Lisa Price, Michelle Stoddart, and Dr. Valerie Daniels-Carter, with Alicia Keys as a surprise honoree.

The night before this event, Sharpton recognized Whoopi Goldberg with NAN’s Keepers of the Dream award.

Page Six reports that Sharpton described Keys as “a young lady who appeals to all of our women and men.” 

The singer added, “I’m so grateful to be surrounded by powerful women… One of the secrets of the sauce is making sure that powerful women are uplifted and that we are at the table.”

In related news, 16-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys wrote the original song “Kaleidoscope” for the new musical HELL’S KITCHEN.
