Alicia Keys says her first visit to Africa was so emotional and inspiring that she is ready to take others there to experience something similar.
The Grammy-winning singer is launching a contest through her charity, Keep a Child Alive, that will give five people an opportunity to visit the continent with Keys. She says her initial trip to Africa totally changed her life.
Keys will announce the contest Tuesday night, when she performs at the Nokia Theatre in New York's Time Square. The concert will air live on YouTube at 8 p.m. EST.
