Capping off a busy week for both of them, Chance the Rapper and A$AP Rocky were among the performers at last night’s Black Ball, an annual event held by Alicia Keys and her charity Keep a Child Alive. Since not many of us have the money or influence to attend a New York blacktie event, the whole thing is being streamed on Tidal to give us a glimpse of their performances.
Chance and A$AP were far from the only performers of the evening. Alicia Keys herself delivered an intimate set, and by evening’s end the stage had been graced by the legendary girl power group Salt-N-Pepa and the iconic Patti Smith.
Keys and her organization started the Black Ball as a way to raise money to support children afflicted with HIV/AIDS. Past performers of the event have included everyone from Jay Z to Gwen Stefani to David Bowie to Justin Timberlake.
Watch a stream of the Black Ball event over on Tidal.
