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."
