Put the tuxes and designer gowns back in the closet. Alicia Keys’ Black Ball charity gala has been delayed due to Hurricane Sandy.

The ninth annual Black Ball to benefit Keys’ organization Keep a Child Alive was originally set to take place on Thursday at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, but it has since been postponed due to the storm. A new date will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all our fellow New Yorkers affected by this devastating storm,” the organization said in a statement (via MTV News).

This year’s Black Ball was set to feature performances from Beyoncé, Carole King, Angelique Kidjo, and Alabama Shakes, while Oprah Winfrey and Kidjo were to be honored for their philanthropic efforts.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
