Joyful noise: the American singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, winner
of 14 Grammy awards, performed at a free event for 1000 fans at
Manchester Cathedral on Monday night of last week. "MTV Crashes
Manchester" was organised with Manchester City Council,
which has defended spending £425,000 on the concert. Ms Keys
said that she was "definitely a spiritual person" and that "being
in a place of worship is an honour." The concert will be broadcast
on MTV on Sunday 28 October at 9 p.m.
