Very inspiring film as well as the people in Afirca. I was in tears hearing their stories. We, in the West, could learn something from them. I hope to make a difference in world and contribute to society as well.

Meeting real needs of people everywhere is commendable, especially when young people like Ms. Keys get involved and give of themselves and their resources. She is a great humanitarian.

She didn't learn adultry from the mother land I hope. Everyone seems to be sooo coool with her, Jolie's, and Pitt's adultry because they are celebrities. They commit adultry and go over to africa and pretend to be a great humanitarian to justify themselves. Sorry, but I'm not worshipping them.

There's so much savior mentality in this video that I just can't handle. Alicia, first off, you refer to Africa as if it's a country. That's not how you do it. Secondly, have you seen the HIV/AIDS rate in New York? This video made me sick. Stop treating us Africans as if we're stupid. We know what kind of problems we have. And you know what, we're the only ones who can solve our problems. We don't need your good intentions, and patronizing attitude. Mchew.

I'm african american and I agree with you. Everyone seems to be sooo coool with her, Jolie's, and Pitt's adultry because they are celebrities. They commit adultry and go over to africa and pretend to be a great humanitarian to justify themselves. Sorry, but I'm not worshipping them.

Regardless of how they choose to live their life, how in the world does the way they choose to live affect you? Ever heard the phrase, "live and let live?" I'm sure it does not affect you in the least, but whatever they can to draw attention to a dire situation which need addressing, that's something that can't be knocked and is very much noble. Besides, who else of celebrity status of your race accomplish just yet. Same accolades go to Sean Penn and his efforts to highlight issues affecting Haiti. What is so wrong with that? Again, leave out their personal lives and focus instead at the real issue being addressed.

There is the chance that we all can help our 'brethern' thruought the world, we don't need to be famous. So now it is our time to do what we can, time is running out on this world, and we are so into ourselves, that we see others die without a wink. We can help change our world, and at the same time try to help other change their world. The ALMIGHTY IS WATCHING.

We should act because Allah is watching allah time? Not act just to help? Glad that she is exposing India's shame. India needs to improve this. What is wrong with Indians?

She is very positive, and she's bringing this to the fore front of Rich America.
