Henson, Monae and Ali will offer support to Keep a Child Alive, which Keys launched in 2003 to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS.
"AIDS is the No. 1 one cause of death of adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa and the second greatest cause of death worldwide. ... I'm honored to be supporting Keep a Child Alive in the fight to put an end to this disease," Henson said in a statement to The Associated Press.
Grammy-nominated Monae added: "We need to come together and use our voice to help put an end to this epidemic!"
Keys held her annual Black Ball charity event in New York City last month, raising $3.8m. Chris Rock hosted the event, which featured performances by Lenny Kravitz, Wale and Lion Babe.
