Alicia Keys attended the Sundance Film Festival to support her first film as executive producer and composer, “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,” which premiered Friday. Directed by George Tillman, Jr., the film tells the story of two young boys who survive the streets of Brooklyn on their own. The film stars Anthony Mackie, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks.

“It’s great because I love being part of bringing stories that you wouldn’t often hear to the world,” she said. “The fact that it was in my hometown – New York – that felt really good. The most important thing for me is that it looked and was so authentic.”

As the film’s composer, Keys was deeply involved in setting the tone of the film.

“I think it really expanded me because it’s a beautiful collaborative process,” she said. “Being able to collaborate with (director) George (Tillman, Jr.), and he has such a cool feeling about music and is specific about how it related to each scene, and that was really interesting. There were some pieces that came really naturally to me and others that I had to kind of think more of how does that feel, what should that feel like?”

Making a direct appeal to blacks and young voters, Grammy-award winning artist Alicia Keys and the Rev. Jesse Jackson held large rallies Friday in the Triangle to urge people to vote early and to vote for President Barack Obama.

“We need to think back to the times when us as a people never even had an opportunity to vote,” Keys told 1,000 people at an event in Chavis Park, near a traditionally black neighborhood in Raleigh. “We have this opportunity now and it’s more than our duty to make sure we are pushing the country forward.”

 The appearances by Keys and Jackson are part of an extensive effort to mobilize Democratic voters this weekend. Signer LeToya Luckett, formerly with Destiny’s Child, and comedian Kevin Hart will attend separate Obama campaign events Saturday in Durham.

Alicia Keys is giving U.S. President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign a big boost by speaking at a special event in Pennsylvania next week to rally support from female voters.

The Empire State of Mind hitmaker will address attendees at the Women 2012 Vote Summit in Philadelphia on Monday (July 16) and encourage ladies to become more politically active.

Keys wants her fellow females to make their voices heard in the upcoming elections as their votes will be key in the race for the White House between the Democrat or his Republican rival, Mitt Romney.

The singer previously threw her support behind Obama for his 2008 presidential campaign.
