Alicia Keys Is The 2009 BET Humanitarian

Alicia Keys is not only an amazing singer-songwriter and actress, she is also an humanitarian with a big heart!

BET Reports: Keys joined with Keep A Child Alive (KCA), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing life-saving anti-retroviral treatment to children and their families with HIV/AIDS in Africa and the developing world. She has made multiple visits to Uganda, Kenya and South Africa to promote care for children with AIDS. Shortly after becoming involved with KCA, Keys was named ambassador and co-host and musical director of the annual Black Ball, a benefit to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and raise funds for the charity.

Keys’ charitable contributions are also felt on her home soil. She is a board member of Frum Tha Ground Up, a non-profit organization devoted to inspiring and motivating America’s youth. Keys is also involved with Teens in Motion, a grassroots organization that provides a safe environment for teens to excel in dance, singing, drama, spoken word and self-esteem workshops, located in the South Bronx.
