Thursday, November 3, 2011, production glue was honored to return to the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC to provide technical supervision to event producer Empire Entertainment for the Keep a Child Alive (KCA) Black Ball. This annual event brings celebrity and philanthropy together to fulfill hopes, dreams, and raise funds for children and families with HIV/AIDS. Hosted by KCA co-founder Alicia Keys, this event takes place annually in New York and London and has raised over $13 million since 2004.
The eighth annual event honored the spiritual, musical, and philanthropic legacy of George Harrison, while highlighting the foundation's focus on India and Africa with dynamic global décor (including an elephant sculpture) and table settings with traditional Indian influence. The star-studded affair featured red carpet appearances by Serena Williams, Swizz Beatz, and Clive Davis, as well as captivating musical performances by Alicia Keys herself, Usher, Norah Jones, and Will.i.am.
Partnering with Empire Entertainment, glue provided technical supervision for the program.
Once again, thank you to Empire Entertainment and KCA for inviting production glue to support this important event with a global impact.
