Keys Donates Dress For Perfect Prom

R+B star ALICIA KEYS made sure a New York City teen's high school prom was memorable, by giving her one of her red carpet dresses to wear. The star donated the dress, a blue Tracy Reese creation that she wore to the NAACP Image Awards, to 18-year-old MALOUNE SAMUEL. The FALLIN' singer worked with non-profit organisation Operation Fairy Dust, which collects previously worn dresses and gives them to disadvantaged girls. Samuel was one of five winners of the group's essay contest. She says, "It's like a dream come true. I feel like princess. I want Alicia to know how amazing this was for me." Keys has some advice for Samuel's big night, "Have fun, keep your head to the sky and be safe." Samuel will wear the gown to her prom at New York City's Washington Irving High School on 2 June (06).
