Alicia has had a fantastic year and I'm sure 2008 will be an even bigger one. She appeared in her first major movie role earlier this year (Smokin' Aces) and another just recently (The Nanny Diaries). She released her beautiful album As I Am which turned out to be the 2nd biggest selling album of 2007 (right after Kanye West) and she has just snagged the role of Lena Horne in which shooting of the movie begins next year. Alicia has been doing it big. I'm so proud of her. You can read the HQ article/interview in Giant by CLICKING HERE.
