RALEIGH--Grammy award winning singer Alicia Keys spent Friday in North Carolina campaigning for President Barack Obama.

Keys appeared at Chavis Park in Raleigh urging the crowd to vote early.

She touched on the topics of healthcare, the economy and women's issues.

Keys said this important election should not be taken lightly and says she's confident North Carolina will re-elect President Obama.

"We can absolutely take this state for him and we have to get out early and vote, we have to make sure that we are using our voices move our country forward. North Carolina is a very important state and I'm here to make sure we are doing that."

More than a thousand people stood in the park to hear Keys speak.

Earlier in the day, she spoke to at a rally in Greensboro.
