Alicia Keys announced Tuesday that her organization, Keep a Child Alive, will honor Oprah Winfrey at its annual Black Ball event on Nov. 1.

Keys calls the media mogul “a personal inspiration to me because her philanthropic work truly comes from the heart.”

The ninth annual event will take place at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Past honorees include former President Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson and Bono.

Keep a Child Alive was founded in 2003. It assists those affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. Keys says this year’s Black Ball will pay “special tribute to the empowerment of women — the heartbeat, soul, and backbone of the AIDS movement.”
