The Tribeca Grand hotel in NYC was filled with some of the music industry’s most giving hearts last night at the Keep A Child Alive documentary premiere.
Bono and Alicia Keys, both known for their selfless contributions to charity, were in attendance for the premiere, which followed a pregnant Keys and five Americans on a trip to South Africa during last year’s World Cup.
During the presentation, Alicia expressed the empathy she felt while filming the documentary, when a seemingly starstruck Bono chimed in, stating, “She’s scary, isn’t she? She’s scary.”

U2’s front man elaborated and stated that Alicia holds a “lioness energy.”
“I was terrified the moment I met her. I was shaking in my boots,” he said. “I was very moved by her singing of course, but what was interesting was the hard questions afterwards, and I think it’s those hard questions that she asks that lead her.”

The compassionate pair met back in 2001 when they recorded a cover of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” and have been an active part of the battle against AIDs since.
KACA 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.
