Alicia Keys Set to Honor Late Beatle Guitarist at Annual Charity Event

Multi-Grammy winner Alicia Keys and her Keep a Child Alive foundation will pay tribute to late Beatle guitarist George Harrison during their annual Black Ball event on November 3.

Keys and her foundation are recognizing Harrison, who died of lung cancer in 2001 at 58, for his “philanthropic contributions to India.” Additionally, Keys will perform at the star-studded event at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom along with Usher, Norah Jones,, Mary J. Blige, Gary Clark Jr., Jay Sean and Midival Punditz with Karsh Kale.

The event marks the eighth year for Keep a Child Alive, which helps children affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. All proceeds from the show will go to the charity.
