ALICIA KEY'S SON INHERITED MOM'S INCREDIBLE TALENT

There is an old adage that says that talent always skips a generation, but Alicia Keys' son has just proved that in his case, the maxim doesn't apply.

Egypt, 8, who has even joined his mom on the piano on stage, is a talented musician.

Alicia shared a video of Egypt playing the piano while she sings along to the song "Lean On Me."

The apple really didn't fall far from the tree. Egypt is a natural talent, and with his mom mentoring him, we can expect to hear great things from this boy in the future.
