*Alicia Keys reunited with her father after years of strained ties and faint memories.

The singer describes the process of healing and mending the broken bond she shares with Craig Cook.

“The process started when my [paternal] grandmother became ill,” she said. “You realize what’s important when you see a person you love dearly and you’re not going to have them for long. It was important to her. And I saw [my father’s] love for her. I realized he wasn’t an evil person so I said, ‘Can we start from this point on? Can we be friends? I can start to understand you and you can start to understand me.’”

She was only 2-years-old when Alicia’s father abandoned his family, forcing her mother, Teresa, to raise their child alone.
