With her Girl on Fire album officially out, Alicia Keys took a break from her busy promotional schedule to honor superstorm Sandy first responders and volunteers in New York City on Tuesday.

The singer took to the iHeartRadio stage in lower Manhattan, singing several songs from her new album for the small group. Keys's son, 2-year-old Egypt, joined mom on stage for a bit, too, sitting comfortably in her arms as she belted her new tunes.

"Thank you again to all of the amazing first responders who continue to help with hurricane #Sandy," Keys wrote on Instagram after her show. "It was such a special night to perform for you all at the @iHeartRadio Theater!" – Melody Chiu

When Alicia Keys gave birth to son Egypt two years ago everything changed.

"To have this type of love in my life at this time in my life, it means so much. Perspectives change, priorities change," she tells Lara Logan on CBS' Person to Person, airing Friday, Nov. 23 (10:00 p.m. ET).

But motherhood has been a welcomed change for Keys, 31, who tied the knot with rapper-producer Swizz Beatz, 34, in July 2010.

Someone's been working on their fitness.

Alicia Keys, 31, flaunted a perfectly toned physique in a teeny, weeny red and black two-piece bikini on Instagram this week.

Showing off her famous curves, the mommy to son Egypt – who will be 2 years old in October – is photographed by her hubby Swizz Beatz for a retro post that he captions, "My Bond Girl:) 007 AK47."

The hip-hop producer, 33, has a habit of posting pictures of his lady love. Just a few messages before the bikini shot, he showed off his wife's flawless, makeup-free face.

Just before host Carson Daly announced Tuesday night that Team Blake's Jermaine Paul was the winner of this season's The Voice on NBC, Paul tells PEOPLE that he "couldn't look at anybody and allow myself not to believe. In that moment I prayed."

Despite Monday night's phenomenal final performance, when he sang R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly," Paul says his confidence was low going into the finale.

"I didn't feel good about the overall outcome," he says. "I didn't know if I was going to win or not."

Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Bid Against Each Other at Charity Auction

Alicia Keys laughed and giggled the night away with pal La La Anthony at the annual Bronx Charter School for the Arts auction.

The ladies were joined by their husbands – Carmelo Anthony and Swizz Beatz – and an onlooker tells us, "Alicia and Swizz looked more in love than ever, gazing into each other's eyes and kissing like no one was watching."

But their affectionate demeanor didn't stop the duo, who attended with 6-year-old song Kaseem Jr. (from Swizz's previous marriage), from bidding against each other for a guitar signed by the Rolling Stones during the Ciroc Vodka-sponsored event.

In the end, though, Keys ended up taking home a penguin drawing created in collaboration between her husband and some schoolchildren, and Swizz took a turn spinning tracks behind the deejay booth at the party.
