NEW YORK (AP) — Superstorm Sandy won't stop Alicia Keys from staging her annual Black Ball.

The singer said Wednesday the New York event will now be held Dec. 6. The fundraising gala for Keys' charity, Keep a Child Alive, was originally set for Nov. 1.

Black Ball REDUX will take place at Harlem's historic Apollo Theater. Honorees Oprah Winfrey and Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo will attend. Bonnie Raitt, Jennifer Hudson and Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard will perform. Whoopi Goldberg will be the night's emcee.

Superstorm Sandy hit the New York area hard last month, killing dozens and causing billions of dollars in damage.

Keep a Child Alive assists people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
