Multi Grammy award-winning artist Alicia Keys has booked a gig in Tel Aviv as part of her ‘Set the World On Fire’ tour on our Independence Day, 4th of July.

The US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (USACBI) has asked Keys to “Cancel Apartheid Israel Show“:
 

Joined with the global movement for a cultural boycott of Israel by musicians, we all ask Alicia Keys to stand on the side of justice and cancel her gig in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Alicia Keys is scheduled to play to a segregated audience in Israel on July 4, 2013 at Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv. Other bands will open for her, but have not been announced yet.

Considering the history of our own country how she could support Apartheid? Maybe these celebrities are so wrapped up in their own world they don’t read the news. She’s young, she’s talented, how could she be so clueless? I just do not get it.

You’re on the wrong side of history with this choice Alicia. Rethink.
