Keys’ Keep a Child Alive celebrated its annual Black Ball _ dubbed Black Ball Redux _ at the Apollo Theater. The R&B singer performed alongside Bonnie Raitt, Jennifer Hudson, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and Angelique Kidjo, who was also honored.
Keys raised about $1.3 million from pledges and auctions. One million dollars came from billionaire Stewart Rahr.
Keep a Child Alive assists those affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. Winfrey launched the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in neighboring South Africa in 2007. She says she was honored to receive an award from Keys, and that it confirms she’s “moving in the right direction.”
