Keep a Child Alive is an organization focused on raising money and awareness for children and families afflicted by AIDS. The Keep a Child Alive Black Ball has raised over $20 million in funds and touched over 300,000 families through its philanthropic efforts. Last night welcomed celebrities, socialites, and industry insiders to the Hammerstein ballroom to raise money and have a ball. Keep a Child Alive co-founder Alicia Keys honored music scion Clive Davis; the night was peppered with performances by Salt N Pepa, Chance the Rapper, and ASAP Rocky.
