R+B star Alicia Keys is eagerly awaiting her historic charity concert at the Great Wall of China tomorrow (25SEP04) - because she's desperate to alleviate suffering in the world.

Proceeds from the gig will benefit the CHINA CHILDREN'S AND TEENAGERS' FUND, and Keys - who earlier this month (SEP04) cancelled a concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, following a bomb attack - is excited about raising funds for a cause she passionately supports.

She says, "It's our obligation as human people who should love and care about each other.

"I feel disheartened by the idea that just because we don't live in the same place, we don't feel and live the same things."
