Alicia Keys set to honour Beatle

Alicia Keys' charity will pay tribute to the late Beatle George Harrison with a star-studded concert in New York City next month.

Her charity, called Keep A Child Alive, will honour the guitarist, who died of lung cancer in 2001, at its annual Black Ball event for his "philanthropic contributions to India".

The charity announced that Alicia will perform alongside Usher, Norah Jones and at the November 3 show at Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom.

Mary J Blige, Gary Clark Jr, Jay Sean and Midival Punditz with Karsh Kale will also hit the stage.

The event marks the eighth year for Keep A Child Alive, which helps children affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. All proceeds will go to the charity.
