Alicia Keys' Keep A Child Alive 11th annual Black Ball went down at Hammerstein Ballroom last night.  And plenty of celebs came out in full force for the cause.  Check out Alicia, her baby bump, her man, her performance and tons of her celebrity friends who came out to raise money to save children in Africa from the AIDS epidemic...

Oh, the sweetness.  Last night Alicia took her bump out for a glamourous night of charity as she and her husband Swizz Beatz shared kisses and laughs on the red carpet of the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball.

The mom-to-be (again) rocked her favorite style--a grecian-inspired gown--with sparkling silver off the shoulder straps.

And she stopped over at Aretha Franklin's table to pay her respects to the Queen:

Aretha and this fur are determined to be the belles of this ball.  She posed it up with her longtime friend Clive Davis (who was equally as influential in Alicia's life) as well.

Madonna was also there and snapped some pics with the woman of the hour.  And speaking of Madonna, she snapped some us-sies with Kanye West (and Riccardo Tisci) too:

Hey 'Ye!  Looks like he flew solo...meaning without wife Kim but with his...friend...Riccardo.  By the way, Kanye popped up at an open mic night in New Jersey the night before, much to the surprise of the locals.  He was there to support the 17-year-old rapper daughter of one of his closest friends.

Angela Simmons served up one of our fave looks of the night.  This midnight lace Michael Costello gown was perfection:

Heeey Nas.  After dropping his new JDilla-produced song "The Season" yesterday, Nas rolled to the black tie event to perform with Alicia.  Nas is wearing a burgundy hounds-tooth, one button, peak lapel jacket, black dress shirt, and black pants all by Ermenegildo Zegna.
