Alicia Keys And Carmelo Anthony Raises A Glass Of Louis XIII To Celebrate Swizz Beatz Talents & Charity Work

Swizz Beatz is really a renaissance man! He does so many things outside of music including fashion, art, being a creative director, designing cars and a lot of charitable work. All of his hard work and giving back to his community eventually paid off because the 34-year-old Bronx native was honored by Haute Living Magazine and Louis XIII for his charitable efforts, talent and living legacy. Swizz’s wife Alicia Keys and his good friend Carmelo Anthony were also in attendance. Artist Domingo Zapata presented Swizz with a commissioned painting. They all shared laughs and sipped glasses of Louis XIII by Remy Martin cognac, which helped sponsor the event.

For the event, Swizz got all dapper in a black trouser suit and shirt which featured black lapels on the collar paired with custom Tom Ford shoes with “KD” written on the front. Alicia got all glammed up in a black shirt and pencil skirt paired with steel-toe-pumps. Melo kept it casual in a sweater paired with denim jeans. Congrats Swizz on all of your success and future endeavors. You are so inspiring!

Swizz thanked his family and friends for supporting him and attending his special event. “I appreciate these opportunities…they go down in the history books. Hopefully the world hears all the great things that everyone here tonight is doing, and that we keep up with the greatness, the happiness and the creativity.”

For their latest release Hype Hair shines the spotlight on famed singer-songwriter/pianist, Alicia Keys. Ever since her debut single “Fallin” back in the early 2000’s, A. Keys has had us in a trance with her soulful sound, unmistaken beauty, and her jazzy sense of style. Find us a girl who wasn’t inspired to rock wild braided designs on her head from 2001 to 2004 like the lovely Ms. Keys. Since her earlier days, though, her ‘do has gradually transformed from fly braids to long and straight. For the 2012 MTV VMAs, Keys debuted her latest single, “Girl On Fire” live on-stage. Something else she debuted was her fabulous short, sleek and chic look.
