Alicia Keys will pay tribute to the late George Harrison at a star-studded gala in New York City next month for her charity, Keep a Child Alive.

The annual Black Ball will take place once again at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom, honoring the Beatle for his “philanthropic contributions to India.” Keys won’t be the only A-lister on stage — Usher, Norah Jones,, Mary J. Blige, Jay Sean and more are scheduled to perform, as well.

All proceeds from the Nov. 3 event will go to Keys’ charity, which is dedicated to “providing life-saving AIDS treatment, care, nutrition, support services and love to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.”

Individual tickets for the Black Ball are priced at $5,000, while gala tables range from $50,000 to $100,000. Fans can also enter to win tickets to the event by making a $10 donation to the charity via text. The first prize winner will receive two main-floor tickets to the dinner and performance, while two second prize winners will get a pair of tickets to enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and the show from the balcony level.

Keep a Child Alive hosts two Black Balls per year, one in New York and another in London. The London event took place on June 15, and included performances by Keys, Mark Ronson, Tinie Tempah, Boy George and more. Since 2004, the events have raised over $13 million for the cause.
