Alicia Keys is lighting up the charts with her new album, Girl On Fire, and now she’s doing the same for the city of New York.

The proud New Yorker—hailing from Harlem—was asked to help bring the Empire State Building to life, as the city premiered its new LED light system.

Keys was the one to flip the switch during a live radio broadcast, as her hit song “Empire State Of Mind” played as the theme of the night.

“When I flipped that switch tonight, it was like the entire Empire State Building was on fire,” she said about the iconic NY moment. She continued by adding, “It was like the most amazing thing that I ever saw.”

Alicia Keys’ Girl On Fire album is in stores now.
