Born as Alicia Augello Cook, this 32-year-old has been a talent powerhouse in the music scene for over 10 years. We just discovered her Instagram, though, so we're crushing all over again.

 

The world famous R&B singer/songwriter, musician,record producer and actress released her first album 'Songs in A Minor' in 2001. It sold over 12M copies, and she was named "best-selling new artists" and "best-selling R&B artist" in the same year. The following year, the album earned her five Grammy Awards. Groundbreakingly powerful, Alicia was the first female to have an MTV Unplugged album that debuted at #1. Remember this?

She's released 5 full-length albums, all successful, the latest being 2012's 'Girl on Fire.' She is currently touring with Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Method Man and Maxwell on the 'Set the World on Fire' world tour. Check out her Instagram to see how the tour is going, and check out more pics below.
