Kanye West, Nas, Diddy, & Madonna Attend Alicia Keys’ Black Ball

The stars put on their finest and stepped out to Alicia Keys’ 11th Annual Black Ball at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on Thursday. A pregnant Alicia, whose second child is due in December, was the belle of the ball as she hosted the fundraiser alongside her husband Swizz Beatz and Diddy.

Swizz, Diddy, and Kanye West took the stage to honor Givenchy’s artistic director Riccardo Tisci, while Nas, Angel Haze, and David Byrne performed.

“We’re here to roll up our sleeves for the children and families living with HIV in India and Africa,” said Puff. “We need the money!”

Alicia, Swizz, and Diddy performed a mash-up of Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” and “Mo Money Mo Problems,” Angel Haze covered OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars,” and Nas put the crowd in a New York state of mind.

Madonna, Aretha Franklin, and Russell Simmons also showed up to support Keep a Child Alive, which has raised over $22.6 million for children and families affected by HIV.
