Alicia Keys and Billboard Live have joined forces to promote the artist as well as new technology which allows fans to watch free concerts broadcast in HD via iPhone or iPod Touch.

A live performance from the 12-time Grammy award winner will be available at the Web site by simply logging on and securely downloading the Microsoft Silverlight and OWL (Our World Live) HD player onto their computer free of charge.

Once the Silverlight and OWL HD software has been downloaded, fans have the ability for the first time ever to view the concert from up to five different camera angles of their choosing (depending on viewers’ bandwidth). There’s a larger full-screen “Director’s Cut” view, as well as four other views where one can replace the main image at any time for a unique experience — all with just the click of their mouse.

In addition to the desktop features offered, the concert series is available to all iPhone and iPod touch users. Through these two systems, the concert is viewable in the main “Director’s Cut” format and available on the go.

The concert will take place Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. PST from The Apollo in New York. In addition to her performance, Keys will be introducing talented new artists who will also perform during the special broadcast.

Here's a promo video of the event:
