Alicia Keys looked stunning tonight as she posed on the red carpet with her husband, Swizz Beatz.
The star is currently in London for her annual Keep A Child Alive Ball. The event was set up to raise money and awareness to “provide treatment, love and support to families affected by HIV/AIDS” in Africa and India.
George Michael has been confirmed to perform at Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive Black Ball, which will take place on June 15th at The Roundhouse in London.
He joins a host of other stars scheduled to take part in the night including Mark Ronson, Tinie Tempah and Paloma Faith.
Speaking of the addition, Alicia Keys said: “I’ve been a fan of George Michael for as long I can remember. He is a legend and an inspiration. His work raising awareness and funds for those suffering with the HIV virus has spanned three decades. I’m honoured that George has lent his voice to our KCA cause and I’m so excited that he’s singing for us at the Black Ball in London. It’s going to be an amazing night!”
The Ball aims to celebrate the work of the KCA as well as raise money for the support of people affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India.

It’s my absolute favorite way to perform. There is something so special about just me on my piano connecting with the audience. It brings me back to the very beginning when I could only perform with a keyboard and to now be able take it back to the essence of who I am with this show, it is so exciting.”
