NEW YORK (AP) - Call it ladies night: Beyonce and Carole King are joining Oprah Winfrey and Alicia Keys at Keys' annual Black Ball event.
Beyonce and King will perform at the fundraising gala for Keys' charity Keep a Child Alive on Nov. 1 at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. The night will honor Winfrey and Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo for their philanthropic efforts. Keys, Kidjo and rock group Alabama Shakes will also perform. Whoopi Goldberg will be the night's emcee.
In a statement Keys says King has "blazed the trail for women in the music industry," adding about the rest of the line-up: "women will be rocking the house this year."
Keep a Child Alive assists people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. The R&B singer launched it in 2003.
