Here Comes the Sun: Alicia Keys and more

Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys sits down with Kelefa Sanneh to discuss her off-Broadway musical "Hell's Kitchen," now playing at The Public Theater in New York City. Beginning in March, the musical will head to Broadway at the Shubert Theatre. Then, Seth Doane travels to Sardinia, Italy, to learn about the Sardinian flatbread called pane carasau. "Here Comes the Sun" is a closer look at some of the people, places and things we bring you every week on "CBS Sunday Morning."


"Hell's Kitchen": Alicia Keys' life and music inspire a new musical

It's been a labor of love by the Grammy Award-winning musician, singer and songwriter Alicia Keys: she's created a new stage musical loosely based on her own life story. "Hell's Kitchen," about a teenage girl with a love of music and a difficult relationship with her mother, features new music as well as some of Keys' most beloved songs Keys rearranged or recontextualized. Correspondent Kelefa Sanneh talks with Keys about the show's origin and its sold-out run in the East Village, with an eye on a future Broadway production. Sanneh also talks with theater critic Ben Brantley about the history of "jukebox musicals," and why "Hell's Kitchen" may be different.

Now, the multiple-Grammy-winner has paused for a little self-reflection in a new book ("More Myself: A Journey") and a new album ("Alicia"), which she discusses with correspondent Tracy Smith.
