Alicia Keys' annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball was a success last night with tons of celebs coming out to support the cause and make their presence known on the black carpet.  Go inside the fabness at the HammersteinBallroom last night inside...

Last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, Alicia Keys hosted her 12th Annual Black Ball, emceed by actor, comedian and director, Chris Rock!

The celeb-packed night celebrated the work of KCA and helped to raise the necessary funds to provide treatment and care for children, youth and families living with and affected by HIV in Africa and India.

Before last night's big event, Keep a Child Alive’s Black Ball raised over $24.9 million for children and families affected by HIV.  Nice!
