Breaking:   Alicia Key's Official twitter account has only "favorited" three tweets since 2011.  On February 21, a tweet was favorited asking her to cancel her planned gig in Israel.  Keys has not yet announced she is cancelling her July 4th date to sing in Tel Aviv, and tickets are already up for sale.  However the boycott is making inroads into the music scene as more and more artists of conscience decline invitations to perform for segregated audiences in Israel.  The tweet:   

 your one of my favorite musicians please don't perform in the apartheid state of Israel!
