Alicia Keys to take 5 people on African trip

Once can't always be enough. That's why Alicia Keys is launching a contest by means of her charity named Keep a Child Alive in the mission to give five individuals an opportunity to visit Africa with her.

The 28-year-old Grammy-winning singer said that her first trip to Africa was so inspiring and life-changing and so she wants others to experience the same feeling.

Keys announced the contest December 1, which happens to be World AIDS Day on her performance at the Nokia Theatre in New York's Time Square. Live airing of the concert will be on YouTube at 8 p.m. EST.

Interested fans can enter the contest online at the foundation's website. Joining can also be done through text. For every text message sent for the contest, the $5 fee will be donated to Keep a Child Alive.

For five days, the five winners will join Keys on visiting the places and people that were most important to her.

Entertainers at the concert performed songs from Keys' fourth studio album entitled "The Element of Freedom" which is set for a December 15 release.
