During a “Today” show interview and concert last week Alicia Keys said that she would make a big announcement that would change five people’s lives on at her World AIDS Day benefit performance tonight at NYC’s Nokia Theatre in Times Square. Well, the news has come a little early. The singer, songwriter and activist will launch a contest to bring five people on a trip to Africa with her. 

Keys was so touched by her first trip to the continent that she founded her non-profit organization Keep A Child Alive, which benefits children and families affected by HIV and AIDS. 
According to AP, fans can enter the contest through the foundation’s Web site, or they can send in a text to the organization. The text messages cost $5 each, but the money will go to Keep a Child Alive.
