Alicia Keys Supports Fight Against HIV at MTV Staying Alive Foundation Gala!

Alicia Keys happily poses in-between Georgia Arnold and Bob Bakish while attending the MTV Staying Alive Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala held at Guastavino’s on Tuesday (November 27) in New York City.

The 37-year-old singer presented the award to Viacom President and CEO Bob for their founding support of the organization, which celebrated 20 years of campaigning around HIV and sexual/ reproductive health and rights, and empowering young people in the global fight to end HIV.

Alicia shared with guests that her own AIDS activism was inspired by a trip she took to South Africa on behalf of MTV Staying Alive in 2002: “That trip to Cape Town literally changed my life!,” Alicia said. “It was my first big important trip to Africa and the first time I was confronted with the scope of the AIDS pandemic, and the young faces and voices in the fight against it. I was truly and profoundly affected. It totally changed the course of my life in the most important and powerful way.”
