More Acts Added to Alicia Keys’ Black Ball Event

01:01 PM Friday 9/21/12 | |

Beyoncé and Carole King will help raise funds for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS by performing at the annual Black Ball event in November in support of Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive charity.

Keys says King “blazed the trail for women in the music industry.” She added “women will be rocking the house this year.” A previous statement from the singer said that this year’s event will pay “special tribute to the empowerment of women – the heartbeat, soul, and backbone of the AIDS movement.”

Emceed by Whoopi Goldberg, the ninth annual Keep A Child Alive’s Black Ball takes place Nov. 1 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Keys, who launched the charity in 2003, is the evening’s host and musical director. She will also perform, in addition to Alabama Shakes and Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo.

Kidjo and Oprah Winfrey are being honored during the event for their philanthropic efforts.

The evening includes a cocktail reception, dinner and live auction. The dress code is “black tie fly.”

Since 2004, the Black Ball has raised over $13.8 million for Keep a Child Alive. Individual tickets to the 2012 event are $5,000. Gala tables (for 10 guests) range from $50,000 to $100,000. To purchase tickets or a table, contact Danielle Spitzer at 718-965-1111 or danielle@keepachildalive.org.
