Bono and Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys may have just found her number one fan!

Bono, the lead singer of U2, praised her for not only her musical endeavors, but her charitable impact on the global fight against AIDS.

At the world premiere of Keys' new Showtime documentary Keep A Child Alive with Alicia Keys, the rocker and well-known philanthropist praised her for finding her "lioness energy" to visit South Africa while pregnant to shine a light on the AIDS epidemic.

The R&B singer started the Keep a Child Alive charity in 2003 to assist those affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. Bono believes her positive influence on the less-fortnuate world around her will only grow stronger since giving birth last year because she won't "let other mothers suffer."

Alicia hopes the film, which airs on the premium channel in conjunction with World AIDS Day on December 1st, will inspire people to start donating toward her organizations cause.

"Even if you never have been able to travel there, or if you never can," she says. "That doesn't mean you can't travel with us and really see it for yourself."

Celebs To Sign Off Twitter And Facebook For Charity

alicia-keys-charity-keep-a-child-alive.jpg

Several celebrities are planning to sign off social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook, this Tuesday all in the name of charity.

Alicia Keys' charity Keep A Child Alive is staging a campaign that will have celebs such as Lady GaGa, Justin Timberlake, and Usher signing off of their social network accounts until they raise $1 million for World AIDS Day.

Some celebrities will even film "last tweet and testament" videos which will show them lying coffins to represent their "digital death."

In an interview, Keys described the "Digital Life Sacrifice" concept behind the campaign:

"It's really important and super-cool to use mediums that we naturally are on.

It's so important to shock you to the point of waking up. It's not that people don't care or it's not that people don't want to do something, it's that they never thought of it quite like that. This is such a direct and instantly emotional way and a little sarcastic, you know, of a way to get people to pay attention."

President and co-founder of Keep A Child Alive, Leigh Blake says:

"We're trying to sort of make the remark: Why do we care so much about the death of one celebrity as opposed to millions and millions of people dying in the place that we're all from? It's about love and respect and human dignity."

She also added that she thinks "GaGa is going to raise it all by herself."

"She's got a very, very mobilized fan base and that's beautiful to watch I think (and) she's able to draw their attention to these issues that are very important, you know, and that people follow it and act."

We completely agree with her! This is a fantastic campaign and with just GaGa's loyal little monsters, we're sure the charity will be able to reach their goal!!

Good work to all the celebrities involved!
