Keys raised a reported $401, 500 for her foundation's HIV/AIDS efforts in Africa and India, thanks to auctions that included two of her own gold racelets (auctioned for $14,000 each) and a lifetime membership to all Donald Trump's golf properties (valued at $180,000).

The evening included performances by Keys, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, and newcomer, Gary Clark Jr.
