Alicia Keys stepped out to the premiere of the Lifetime original film Five – of which she was co-director – with her husband, music producer Swizz Beatz. The premiere took place Monday, Sept. 26 at the Skylight Theater in New York City and was attended by fellow co-directors Demi Moore and Jennifer Aniston, as well as stars like Gloria Estefan and Wyclef Jean.
Five follows the storylines of five women affected by breast cancer, with a different celebrity co-director in charge of each story. The premiere was scheduled to coincide with the start of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is approaching in October.
This is the first film directorial role for the twelve-time Grammy Award winner, who has been busy with a newborn child and her recent I Heart Radio concert performance, which was said to be one of the R&B sensation’s most memorable performances yet.
Five makes its network debut on Oct. 10 on the Lifetime network. Keys’ debut as co-producer of the Broadway play Stick Fly will take place on November 18 at the Lyceum Theatre.
