Not even a super hurricane can stop singer from bringing hope this year to a lot of deserving children. The "" artist and proud mom announced on Wednesday, November 27 that her Black Ball REDUX gala, originally planned for November 1, would now take place on December 6 at Harlem's Apollo Theater. Superstorm Sandy hit New York early this month causing the event's rescheduling.

Black Ball is part of Key's Keep a Child Alive charity organization and is an annual music fundraising event that brings entertainment and philanthropy together to raise funds for HIV/AIDS infected children in Africa and India. This year's gala night will honor two highly respectable women namely media queen and singer/activist Angelique Kidjo for their philanthropic contributions in Africa and worldwide.

For the December date, the ball will also put together amazing performances from blues singer , actress and recording artists , and Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard. Female comic and TV personality will take the hosting role for that evening.

"In Africa and India where Keep a Child Alive works, HIV is a disaster that's tearing families apart every day. And while it would be easier to turn away right now, with all that has happened in my hometown, it would be disastrous for the children who count on us for survival. So for them, we're going to turn it up - and turn it out at the Black Ball REDux!" said Keys in the announcement.
