Video: Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, & Black Eyed Peas Give Back on ‘Idol’

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys, the Black Eyed Peas, Elton John, Joss Stone, and more chipped in to help raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS on Wednesday’s “Idol Gives Back” telethon. Among the highlights was Mary J. Blige rocking out to Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” with an all-star band including Travis Barker, Randy Jackson, and Orianthi.

Alicia, who performed “Un-thinkable” and “Empire State of Mind (Part II),” spoke to Rap-Up.com about the impact “Idol” has had on her charity. “‘Idol’ has definitely supported Keep a Child Alive in a major way,” she said. “We launched the campaign for Text Alive [last year] and that was major for us because with such a platform we were able to raise almost $500,000 just from one call to action of the viewers of that show.”
