Alicia Keys reaches charity goal

Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga and other celebrities can sign back online, thanks to donations from their fans and a philanthropist.

Singer Alicia has announced that her charity, Keep A Child Alive, reached its one million dollar fundraising goal in honour of last week's World Aids Day.

A slew of celebrities signed off digital platforms like Twitter and Facebook and asked their fans to donate to the charity, which supports families affected by HIV and Aids in Africa and India.

The celebrities could sign back online when the fundraising goal was met.

The entertainers and their fans raised 500,000 dollars, and philanthropist Stewart Rahr matched it.

Participants in the Digital Death campaign included Ryan Seacrest, Justin Timberlake, Usher and Kim Kardashian.
