Singing sensations Patti LaBelle, James Wright Chanel promote HIV awareness

On Nov. 30, 2016, AIDS Healthcare Foundation began its World AIDS Day initiative, Around the Globe in a Day, with Keep the Promise in Los Angeles. Keep the Promise, which welcomed thousands of people for a march down Hollywood Boulevard and a free concert at the Dolby Theater, was an advocacy effort created to continue to promote awareness about HIV and AIDS. Hosted by actress-choreographer, Rosie Perez, the concert was headlined by Patti LaBelle and also featured Patti Pies singing sensation James Wright Chanel, B Flow, Common, JoJo, Jencarlos Canela, and Espinoza Paz. In addition, AHF presented living legend Harry Belafonte with its Lifetime Achievement Award for his charitable work and activism all over the world at the event.

Today, AHF continues its Around the Globe in a Day activities with free concerts and testing events in Cambodia, Mexico and other areas throughout the U.S., Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and Asia.

Speaking about last night’s event, AHF’s president, Michael Weinstein, says, “As we observe World AIDS Day, the 1.1 million people who died of AIDS last year will be remembered. We will continue to fight for people’s right to access lifesaving treatment, and to educate young people and others who may be at risk.”
