Last night at The Apollo Theatre Alicia Keys had her annual save a “Keep A child Alive” Black Ball. Alicia’s event helps to raise money to help those with HIV/AIDS in India and Africa. What a beautiful night it was. I love when celebrities use the platform they have to make a difference in the world, instead of all this twitter beefing! Alicia Keys was able to raise 1.3 million dollars. Jennifer Hudson, Brittany Howard, and Alicia Keys performed.

Here is what Alicia had to say about the event:

“There are places in the world where Keep a Child Alive serves where they have a Hurricane Sandy every day. They don’t have electricity, they don’t have heat … and that made me more invigorated to make sure this Black Ball happened.”
