Alicia Keys To Tribute George Harrison
Keys won't be the only A-list performer at the benefit. The charity has announced that a broad array of performers also will make appearances, including Usher, Norah Jones, will.i.am, Mary J. Blige, Gary Clark Jr., Jay Sean and Midival Punditz with Karsh Kale. The show takes place November 3 at Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom.
The charity event celebrates the eighth year of Keep a Child Alive, which assists children suffering with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India, and the 40th anniversary of George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh. Currently, the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF is a joint commission between the Harrison family and the U.S., and the fund provides "lifesaving assistance to children, including health, education, nutrition and emergency relief." more on this story
