Keep A Child Alive’s 11th annual Black Ball benefit will go down at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom on October 30 this year. Hosted once again by Keep A Child Alive co-founder Alicia Keys, the event will feature performances from Talking Head David Byrne, rapper Angel Haze, Keys herself and more TBA. About the event, David Byrne told Billboard:

Many many years ago my friend Leigh Blake, co-founder of Keep a Child Alive, approached me about being part of a charity record called Red Hot & Blue. It was a great experience, and it had the side effect of opening my ears to the music of Cole Porter! So, when she approached me about participating in this year’s Black Ball, Keep a Child Alive’s annual fundraiser hosted by Alicia Keys, I immediately said yes. I’m flattered and excited.

Tickets for the benefit are on sale now.

Keep A Child Alive “support[s] innovative, community-led responses that increase access to life-saving HIV treatment and care, nutritious food, and loving support for children and families living with and affected by HIV in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, and India.”
