Tuesday marked six months since the girls were abducted. Keys kicked off a protest with 30 others at the consulate general of Nigeria, holding signs that read "We Are Here" and "Safe Schools Now!"

They chanted "Bring back our girls" as New Yorkers walked up the street during lunch hour, while others stopped to capture photos and video. Keys, who is pregnant, said in an interview that she felt touched to take action since she is a mother. Her son, Egypt, turned 4 on Tuesday.

Keys was joined at the protest by her husband, producer-rapper Swizz Beatz.
