Alicia Keys Performed With Her Son And It Was Absolutely Adorable

He's a little star in the making!

It’s not every day that an 8-year-old gets to wow a crowd with their piano skills on a stage as grand as the one at the iHeartRadio awards, but when you’re the son of musicians Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, it’s just par for the course. Keys performed her new song, “Raise A Man,” at the awards show on March 14, and she got to share the stage with her son Egypt in what was a very special moment for the mom.

Egypt joined her to impress the audience on the piano as his mom belted out lyrics from “Raise A Man” and even a few bars of “You Don’t Know My Name” before taking a moment to thank the crowd for allowing her and her son to experience this together.

See the mother and son duo on stage together in this clip of the performance from the TVS YouTube channel (Egypt appears a little after the 2-minute mark):

Despite the fact that Keys is no stranger to gracing the stage with incredible performers and wowing audiences with her powerhouse vocals, the mom seemed completely humbled by this moment. She took to Instagram to write about the feeling of sharing this moment with her son:

“The Mommy & Me moment I’ve been dreaming of!!!” she wrote. “WOWOWOW!!! Egy I’m in awe of you! You’re so BRAVE and BEAUTIFUL and make me so PROUD!!! The feeling I felt with you next to me during this song???? FULL BODY CHILLS. You ROCKED SON!!!!! [Y]our journey is just beginning and I’m so blessed to #raiseaman like you.”
