Stars shine at Keep a Child Alive Black Ball


A top line-up of talent including global superstar and ambassador Alicia Keys attended the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball fundraiser at the Camden Roundhouse in London.


Despite suffering from a slight wardrobe malfunction on arrival, Alicia Keys looked every inch in control of the situation although one journalist commented on the whether Alicia’s belt was too tight around the tummy.

The change in venue from Westminster to Camden was welcomed by all even though George Michael and Tennis star Serena Williams were unable to attend.


Keep a Child Alive offers children, their families and entire communities a shoulder to lean on and a heart that beats for them. Above all their aim is to provide the dignity of life.


Facts: Anti-retroviral therapy (ART) has transformed the lives of people with AIDS in the West, returning them from sickness to health. But only 42% of the 9.5 million people who so desperately need treatment have access to it.

Facts: Keep a Child Alive provides first-class AIDS care through doctors, nutrition, testing, transportation and treatment for opportunistic infections, which are all necessary for anti-retroviral treatment to be successful.

Facts: 15.2 million children have lost their parents to AIDS. These children will face enormous risks in their struggle to stay alive. They will often be forced into sexual exploitation or enrolled as child soldiers.
