Los Angeles – Celebrities including Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Seacrest and Serena Williams have quit updating their Twitter and Facebook accounts, joining Keys’ campaign to raise $1 million for her AIDS in Africa charity. The celebrities are also shooting ads showing themselves lying in coffins for the Keep a Child Alive charity campaign, dubbed "Digital Life Sacrifice."
San Bruno, Calif. - After its first successful live streaming concert last month featuring U2, Google’s (NASD: GOOG) YouTube has announced plans to offer a live webcast of R&B singer Alicia Keys’ Dec. 1 concert in New York in honor of World AIDS Day. The company said it will also be encouraging viewers to donate to Alicia’s charity of choice, Keep a Child Alive.
New York - Sony BMG’s (NYSE: SNE) RCA Music Group announced on Monday that Alicia Keys’ "No One" has become the first ringback tone to be certified "Gold," representing sales of over 500,000 copies. A ringback tone plays when a caller dials your cell phone number — instead of the usual ringing. RCA added that the song has also sold over 2 million master recording ringtones, and that Keys has sold over 4.3 million mobile downloads since the end of last year.
