In terms of music events, the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball in London is the show you want to attend, and this year Alicia Keys and Mark Ronson will be leading it.

Previous performers at this event have included the likes of Gwen Stefani, Bono, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, David Bowie, Chris Martin, and Usher, to name a few. And this year it has already been confirmed that George Michael, Tinie Tempah, and Paloma Faith will be performing along with other yet to be announced guests.

“I’ve been a fan of George Michael for as long I can remember,” Keys said. “I’m honoured that George has lent his voice to our Keep a Child Alive 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 event will be on June 15th and is being held specifically to raise funds for Keep a Child Alive, an AIDS charity that works to improve the lives of infected children and their families. If you live in London or want to make the trip, tickets are still available to purchase, and at the basement bargain price range of £1,500 for individual tickets and £20,000 for a whole table.

We should also mention that this is a charity that Keys has been passionate about, as she participated in their Twitter campaign, which helped raise $1 million for Keep a Child Alive.
