Keys' comments section was agog with comments as her fans are so excited to hear the good news. A fan showed enthusiasm by commenting, "Oh.. Okay...Yup. Yup. I am now audio booked and busy during my quarantine.'
A fellow singer, Vanessa Ferguson, also commented, "congratulations, sis! Can't wait to read this." A fan who has started the book said, "I'm not even halfway through, but I'm already in tears. It's incredible."
The book, "More Myself" explores the singer's arrival into adulthood while in the spotlight. It also tells how she learned to be herself. In an interview with NPR in February, she said,
"I've been thinking so much about who I am, and what makes me that way, and how can I stay connected to the truth of that even in a noisy world."
