Sade, Keys, Jay Z Team Up For Keep A Child AliveThursday, July 15, 2010
Slated to perform at the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball in New York September 30, the duo will join Keys, who co-founded Keep A Child Alive, in an effort to raise funds for children in need.
Raising over $10 million since 2004, Keep A Child Alive provides life saving HIV/AIDS treatment to children and families in need. It also funds ten clinical and orphan care centers in India, Kenya, Uganda and South Africa.
"Sade? Jay-Z? Both icons and both major influences of mine," Keys said in a statement Wednesday. "I am overwhelmed by their generosity in helping us continue the tradition of making the Black Ball the best fundraiser in NYC. There are more surprises coming up! Stay tuned!"
Sade and Jay Z follow previous Keep A Child Alive Black Ball guests Jennifer Hudson and Bono.
