Happy Birthday, Alicia Keys

According the the running footnote on the news this morning, today, Alicia Keys turns 24. I'm 30, and she's already made more money than I ever will. I don't begrudge her that, she has a tremendous singing voice, and people are willing to spend the money to hear her. If I could get someone to spend money to hear me sing, I'd do it, too, though I can't imagine they'd like what they hear. I just wonder, when it comes to monetary success for entertainers, is it more a matter of talent, or is it more marketing and luck?
