At 9:00 p.m. ET, Alicia Keys will help kick off the light show by flipping the
switch live in Clear Channel New York City studios with Elvis Duran, Z100; DJ
Clue, Power105; Helen Little, 106.7 Lite fm; and Cubby, 103.5 KTU—a moment
that will be synchronized on-air to two of Keys' tracks—her single from her
new album "Girl on Fire," followed by her smash hit "Empire State of Mind."
New Yorkers and those in the surrounding area with a view of ESB can tune into
one of four Clear Channel radio stations—Z100, 103.5 KTU, Power105, and 106.7
Lite fm—as the stations simultaneously play accompanying music to the light
show. The light show will be hosted for on-demand viewing at iHeartRadio.com,
home to Clear Channel's digital radio service, by 10 a.m., on Tuesday,
November 27.

The state-of-the-art dynamic lighting system from PCK is unique to ESB and
allows customized light capabilities from a palette of over 16 million colors
in limitless combinations along with effects previously not possible such as
ripples, cross-fades, sparkles, chasers, sweeps, strobes and bursts. In
addition to greater control and management of the lighting, the new
computerized system will deliver superior light and vibrancy levels in
real-time, unlike the previous floodlights.

"The Empire State Building's lights are the international icon of the New York
City skyline. We use our tower lights to partner with select charities,
organizations, and events around the world," said Anthony E. Malkin, President
of Malkin Holdings which supervises the Empire State Building. "Philips Color
Kinetics' new LED lights were installed over the summer and have been set at
the color and intensity of the incandescent lights they replaced. As of
tonight, our lights' full range and intensity will be brought to life, forever
changing the New York skyline. We wanted to celebrate with and thank New York
City and our global audience with a specially choreographed, custom light
show. I am so happy that real New Yorkers, Alicia Keys, Z100, 103.5 KTU,
Power105, and 106.7 Lite fm are sharing in our gift of the light show
tonight."

"The Empire State Building has always been a symbol of what's possible in New
York, and all the dreams that can come true in this city that never sleeps,"
said Alicia Keys. "I'm so excited to unveil the new tower lights that are
going to illuminate the city below like never before—shining bright with
inspiration. As a proud New Yorker, I'm so honored and humbled to be a little
part of its history."

To extend the gift to New York City, and celebrate the release of her fifth
studio album, GIRL ON FIRE , Alicia Keys will also perform on Tuesday,
November 27. Her special performance will be held ^ at the iHeartRadio
Theater presented by PC Richard and Son in Tribeca for the first responders
and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to restore the affected area, as
