Alicia Keys Strikes a Pose

Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz strike a pose on the red carpet at the ‘Keep A Child Alive Black Ball’ event in London.  It was one of the first big public outings for the couple since welcoming son Egypt in October 2010.

Keys was all decked out for the evening in a black feathered gown with a gold studded belt.  The singer was on hand not only to perform, but she also served as co-host for the annual event in New York City.   Alicia was a last minute substitution for singer George Michael who pulled out at the last minute due to an illness.

After the event Keys tweeted, “What a night! #BlackBall was magical. Thanks to the London community for coming together to help save children’s lives.”
