R&B singer Alicia Keys will go ahead with her planned July performance in Israel, despite calls from other artists and the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment (BDS) movement for her to cancel the event.

In a statement to The New York Times, Keys said on Friday: “I look forward to my first visit to Israel. Music is a universal language that is meant to unify audiences in peace and love, and that is the spirit of our show.”

The Simon Wiesenthal Center lauded Keys decision, describing it as "courageous."
