Beyoncé to Perform at Alicia Keys’ Black Ball

Alicia Keys and Beyoncé

Beyoncé is lending her voice to a good cause. The pop superstar will perform at Alicia Keys’ annual Black Ball in November.

The “Single Ladies” singer will take the stage, along with Carole King, on November 1 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The fundraising gala will benefit Keys’ Keep A Child Alive organization to help people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.

The evening will honor Oprah Winfrey and Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo for their philanthropic efforts. Keys, Kidjo, and rock band Alabama Shakes will also perform, while Whoopi Goldberg plays emcee.

“Women will be rocking the house this year,” said Keys, whose album Girl on Fire is due November 27.

Past Black Ball performers have included Jay-Z, Usher, Sade, will.i.am, and Janelle Monáe.

    @Vance, No, they, don’t and I’m absolutely sure my ears are still attached.

    This show is going to be so great! Alicia and Carole King. I would love to see them. I’m glad Beyonce is supporting Alicia’s charity but she’s just not one of my favorite singers. Anyway I know the ball will be a huge success and Alicia is just the best.

    The sooner we realise that our worth is not measured by the number of zeros in our bank accounts, we will be better off as human beings.

    It amazes me how people call themselves fans….fans appreciate the artists they are fond of and that’s all…if u don’t like an artist don’t support their music….evveryone turns a punk ass pic or performance into a competition and it is sad cause all the artist mentioned in your posts are bomb in their own right, or you wouldn’t be discussing them or mentioning them…..stop the buffoonery…#sadassstans
