NEW YORK (AP) -- Call it ladies night: Beyoncé and Carole King are joining Oprah Winfrey and Alicia Keys at Keys' annual Black Ball event.

Beyoncé and King will perform at the fundraising gala for Keys' charity Keep a Child Alive on Nov. 1 at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. The night will honor Winfrey and Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo for their philanthropic efforts. Keys, Kidjo and rock group Alabama Shakes will also perform. Whoopi Goldberg will be the night's emcee.

Keys says in a statement that King has "blazed the trail for women in the music industry," adding about the rest of the lineup, "women will be rocking the house this year."

Keep a Child Alive assists people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. The R&B singer launched it in 2003.
