Why Writing Her Autobiography Healed Alicia Keys

Oprah Winfrey has announced the first book she will publish under her imprint, An Oprah Book, and she has convinced one of her favorite artists to tell her own story, Alicia Keys.

She written her own autobiography and tale of self-discovery titled More Myself and Alicia says she did not want to call it a memoir, so he’s labeling it "a journey."

In a video released with the announcement, Alicia tells Oprah she didn’t tell anybody she was writing it and how writing it was incredibly cathartic. She explains:

“What’s really interesting is just recalling all of these places and spaces and the moments in your life that cause you angst or anxiety or proud moments, or things you have to work through.”

Alicia’s book More Myself goes on sale November 5th, but you can watch Alicia and Oprah’s video discussing it below:
