Fourteen-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys and AK Worldwide have teamed up with Bento Box Interactive to create a storytelling app, The Journals of Mama Mae & Lee Lee. The story is inspired by Keys’ relationship with her Nana and is centered around a young New York City girl’s relationship with her wise grandmother. The app encourages exploration through journaling, reading and music, which has been produced by the powerhouse vocalist.
Being a mom for the past two years also prompted Alicia to launch the app. “I was just getting introduced to kind of the TV shows and the DVDs and all the things you start kind of introducing your kids to,” she says. “I thought how cool it would be to be a part of something that really allows them to hear music from different places, different cultures, different sounds.”
The app is available for purchase today on iTunes for $3.99.
