Alicia Keys has done much philanthropic work on the African continent throughout the years, and she's not stopping now.
She's one of the many famous faces to join the #BringBackOurGirls campaign to bring awareness in the U.S. and world at large about the kidnapping of over 200 female students from a Nigerian school by an Islamic group called Boko Haram last month. It’s believed the group are selling the girls off as wives, while the Nigerian government and President Goodluck, has seemed lax on attempts to find the young women.
Alicia, along with Leona Lewis, Ziggy Marley, First Lady Michelle Obama, and actresses Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie and many others, are joining the viral campaign by taking a photo of themselves holding a sign with #Bring Back Our Girls and posting to social media to shed light on the tragic events happening in Nigeria.
