NEW YORK (AP) _ Taraji P. Henson and Alicia Keys are joining forces to fight HIV and AIDS.

Henson, Janelle Monae and Laila Ali are signing on as ambassadors for the newly formed power council on Keys’ charity, Keep a Child Alive. The announcement was made Tuesday to coincide with World AIDS Day.

Henson, Monae and Ali will offer support to Keep a Child Alive, which Keys launched in 2003 to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS.

Keys held her annual Black Ball charity event in New York City last month, raising $3.8 million.
