13 Of Hip-Hop's Most Charitable Moments
Alicia Keys is a devoted AIDS activist and philanthropist as much as she is a devoted singer and songwriter. As the co-founder of 'Keep a Child Alive', a people's movement that provides life-saving AIDS medicine and surrounding care to children and families in Africa and India, Keys has helped to raise huge amount for the worthy cause. In 2008 for example, Alicia raised $40,000 simply by by asking concert goers to text to donate.
