The English R&B singer Marsha Ambrosius first caught America's attention as Floetry's singing half (remember the single "Say Yes"?). Since then, she's penned songs for Alicia Keys and Jazmine Sullivan. Ambrosius, who plays Rams Head Live Sunday night, struck out on her own this past March with her debut solo album, "Late Nights & Early Mornings. " It's a seductive album with enough surprises to keep things interesting: she covers Portishead's "Sour Times" and first single "Hope She Cheats On You (With a Basketball Player)"

She dropped out of Columbia University to sign a record deal with Columbia Records, and she hasn't looked back. After jumping from Columbia to Clive Davis' J Records, piano prodigy and singer Alicia Keys recorded Songs in A Minor. And the rest is recent history. The 2001 CD was a smash hit -- especially the song "Fallin' " -- and earned the 21-year-old Keys five Grammy Awards this year. At 7:30 tonight, Keys will perform at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway in Columbia.

Alicia Keys has aspirations of being a rock star, belting over screaming guitars. She also sees herself as a jazz chanteuse, elegantly dressed while scat-singing and improvising melodies on her beloved piano. Then she wants to do more acting -- some drama, maybe comedy -- and establish more charitable efforts. The list of things she wants to accomplish goes on and on. But it's not as if the pop superstar with the seductive, camera-ready face hasn't done a lot already. At 27, with a career that's barely a decade old, she owns 11 Grammys and four multiplatinum albums.

The music industry kicks off every year with a burning question: Who is most likely to battle it out for the Grammys? We'll find out today, when the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announces the names in the running for those fetching gold thingamabobs in nearly 100 categories. (The awards will be forked over Feb. 27.) But you needn't own a crystal ball, or commit larceny, to get an early peek at the nominees in this year's top categories. When it comes to its pets, Grammy voters are fairly predictable, in a good way. They go mainly for a sensible mix of prestige and popularity.

Behind her the set is brownstone New York. It could pass for any block in the city. It is her home away from home, complete with fire escapes and her neighborhood stoop. And make no mistake, Alicia Keys is at home. Keys is so high-profile nowadays, a media darling, burning up the charts and racking up a bunch of Grammy nominations, that it all seems a bit much. Can she really be all that? The unequivocal answer? Yes, she can. As her tour that included a January gig at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington has proven, Keys is the most slamming thing to emerge from otherwise tired radio waves, and she knows it. At 20, she exudes the confidence of a woman in the prime of her life, knowing that yes, this is the life, and expressing that by the one means she has instantly accessible: her God-given voice.

With 13 Grammy nominations going to a pair of rookie soul singers, India.Arie and Alicia Keys, soul music is industry-certified as the latest big thing. The fast rise of these two performers and the general acclaim flowing toward their peers -- including Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, D'Angelo and Eric Benet -- have the feel of a movement gathering force and demanding attention. This surge of artists who share ideas and influences even has a name: neo-soul. But let's be real. Of the 100 tunes on Billboard's latest tally of "Hot R&B / Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks," only a handful could be called soul -- the strain of R&B that prizes melody and songcraft as much as rhythm, and brings the fervor of gospel music to matters of the heart as well as wider social concerns.

1. Alicia Keys at 1st Mariner: Robin Thicke (my favorite male singer) and Melanie Fiona (one of my latest favorites) open up for my all-time favorite: Ms. Alicia Keys. (I guess I have lots of favorites.) Anyway, I'm super excited for this! I had my tickets weeks ago. 7:30 Wednesday. Tickets start at $39.50. AUBREY FORNWALT, B 2. She & Him, Volume 2 : I can't get enough of Zooey Deschanel -- in movies or in music. So if She & Him's second album, dropping Tuesday, is anything near as good as the first, I'm sure to be happy with the results.

POP MUSIC 'Element of Freedom': by Alicia Keys: In a music world dominated by the likes of Lady Gaga and Kanye West, class and restraint are in short supply, making this pop pianist's latest album all the more refreshing. While "Freedom" hasn't stood out on the radio so far, don't let that fool you. It flows more as a complete album rather than as a string of splashy singles. In stores Tuesday. DVD 'The Hangover': Yes, the sleeper hit of the summer is disgusting, violent and incredibly stupid.

New faces of R&B and one of the genre's legends are among the leading nominees for top honors at the 47th annual Grammy Awards. Innovative rapper Kanye West leads the field with 10 nods, followed by R&B sex symbol Usher and the soulful Alicia Keys with eight each. The legendary Ray Charles has seven nominations for his posthumously released all-star duet album Genius Loves Company. Usher was expected to lead the nominations announced yesterday, so it was surprising to some industry insiders that West managed to slip by him. Usher's Confessions has sold more than 7 million copies, roughly three times as many as West's The College Dropout.
