Alicia Keys' nonprofit to honor Oprah Winfrey

NEW YORK (AP) — Oprah Winfrey is getting a tribute from Alicia Keys.

Keys announced Tuesday that her organization Keep a Child Alive will honor Winfrey at its Black Ball event on Nov. 1.

Key says in a statement that the media mogul is “a personal inspiration to me because her philanthropic work truly comes from the heart.”

Winfrey’s humanitarian efforts include the building of schools in South Africa.

Keep a Child Alive was founded in 2003 and assists HIV/AIDS victims in Africa and India. Keys says this year’s Black Ball will pay “special tribute to the empowerment of women — the heartbeat, soul, and backbone of the AIDS movement.”

The ninth annual event takes place at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Past honorees include former President Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson and Bono.
