New York - Alicia Keys raised more than $1m for her charity and honoured Oprah Winfrey for her humanitarian efforts on Thursday.

Keys' Keep a Child Alive celebrated its annual Black Ball - dubbed Black Ball Redux - at the Apollo Theatre.

The R&B singer performed alongside Bonnie Raitt, Jennifer Hudson, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and Angelique Kidjo, who was also honored.
