She hopes movie will inspire others to help give the people of Mother Africa their dreams back.
Alicia Keys has had a very busy year. If she wasn’t ruffling the feathers of 50 Cent she was signing a humongous deal with Vitamin Water that…probably further ruffled the feathers of 50 Cent. But this is sure to give even 50 goosebumps. The Grammy-award-winning singer Alicia Keys recently embarked on a charity mission to Africa to visit some of its areas most afflicted by the deadly A.I.D.S. virus.
Keys’ organization, Keep A Child Alive has produced a 60-minute internet documentary of her experience entitled “Alicia in Africa: Journey to the Motherland.” The documentary was designed to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS among her fans in effort to get them to join her campaign, “Start a Virus, Stop a Virus.”
The documentary chronicles Key’s travels through South Africa, Kenya and Uganda where she visits orphanages that have experimented with promising antiretroviral drugs. Keys hopes the film “will inspire others to help us in our mission to give the people of Mother Africa their dreams back, let their children be happy and healthy and preserve the family structure that is so important to them.”
