Alicia Keys Raises $1.3 Mill At BLACK BALL--Oprah, Swizz Beatz, Mom Teresa & More CELEBRATE


Alicia Keys hosted her annual Black Ball last night at the Apollo Theater.  And despite it being moved from its original date due to Hurricane Sandy, the A-listers still came out to celebrate and help raise over $1.3 mill for Alicia's Keep A Child Alive charity.


Pics and deets inside...



Rocking a velour eggplant gown for her big night, Alicia Keys hosted her big 2012 Black Ball in Harlem last night, which was emceed by Whoopi Goldberg.  And looked fab while doing so.  The event raised serious cash for her Keep A Child Alive foundation, and she made it a family affair with her mom, Teresa Augello, her hubby, Swizz Beatz, and both of their brothers.



Ms. Teresa must be super proud of her "Girl On Fire" daughter.


Alicia tweeted a pic of her and her hubby saying her "best friend" made the night perfect.

Alicia posed it up with chef Padma Lakshmi and Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo.


Alicia tweeted that it was an honor to be honoring Oprah Winfrey at her even for all the charity work she does.  And as 58-year-old O took the stage, she praised Alicia's do-gooder side:

“You try to keep a child alive and I try to educate them as best as I can...When I look at Africans girls I see myself.  I continue to work for them to have the same opportunities that I have."


Mrs. keys also hit he stage to perform with Bonnie Rait and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.

Alicia's brother Cole and Swizzy's bro Andre Leon King rocked tees from the Keep A Child Alive foundation.



And gorgeous model Chanel Iman was there in a stunning gold & silver gown.  Fab.




Some of these posts are

Some of these posts are laughable! People are still talking that homewrecking nonsense when its the worst kept secret in the industry that Swizz had left the house and been hitting off several chicks before Alicia Keys....I guess when Mashonda got embarrassed it was time to blame it on somebody (be in denial) and some of yall are riding right along with the BS....lol!!!

No matter how you feel about

No matter how you feel about her, she is still out there doing something for a GREAT CAUSE! If it makes some of you feel better her album bumped Rih's album as the new #1 but she sold way less than Rih did in the 1st week Rih did over 200,000 or 300,000 it's first week Alicia only sold 150,000-175,000 it's first week which is low for her. AK must have lost a few loyal fews because of the cheating scandal because she usually sell 400,000 in her first wk of sales. What ever the reason is we should stop judging and let God judge her not us!

All of you women talking

All of you women talking about man stealing. A woman cannot steal a man. If he wants to leave you, he will. Just like you cannot MAKE a man stay. Makes all of you sound PATHETIC! "She stole him from Mashonda" Foolishness!

Why can't a woman steal a

Why can't a woman steal a married man?! You sound foolish. If Alicia knew that man was married and she's attending Mashonda's kids birthday parties knowing the whole time she is fucking a married man, THATS FOUL! Point blank. I'm sure she tempted him and rocked the boat enough until she pushed through whatever cracks existed in their marriage. harlot.
