GEORGE MICHAEL is confirmed to perform at Keep a Child Alive’s Black Ball, London hosted by Alicia Keys and Mark Ronson on June 15th 2011 at The Roundhouse, London NW1.“I’ve been a fan of George Michael for as long I can remember. He is a legend and an inspiration. His work raising awareness and funds for those suffering with the HIV virus has spanned three decades. I’m honoured that George has lent his voice to our KCA cause and I’m so excited that he’s singing for us at the Black Ball in London. It’s going to be an amazing night!” (Alicia Keys)
