The 12th annual Keep a Child Alive fundraiser will also feature performances by Wizkid and Lion Babe, among others.
Alicia Keys will share hosting duties with Chris Rock when Keep a Child Alive’s annual Black Ball returns to New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Nov. 5. Grammy Award winner Keys will also perform, joined by Wizkid, Lion Babe and others to be announced.
Now in its 12th year, the Black Ball raises funds to help Keep a Child Alive (KCA) provide treatment and care for children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV in Africa and India. This year’s theme -- “Afrofuturism” -- focuses on the ingenuity, creativity and talent of Africa’s entrepreneurs, artists, designers, musicians and activists.
