In the midst of traveling the world, hosting events and even posing for photos, I always make it my duty to attend events that bring awareness to very important issues. For decades HIV/ AIDS has been a epidemic taking over the health and lives of thousands of people. Since the early 1980’s, the tragic disease has effected between 100,000-300,000 people across five different continents.

amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy. – http://www.amfar.org/amfAR-Introduction-and-History/

I am honored to be apart of a community that ginuinely cares for the health and well being of others.  There is something about the compassion that people have for one another that pushes me to continue to support this cause. In addition to the modern calm ambiance, the entertainment and key note speakers reminded us why we continue to care so deeply about this issue in our communities.  I’ll keep my singing to myself and my shower lol. But because I love my fans so much, here is a sneak peak of some of the amazing talent showcased at this celebratory event.

” Over the course of 7 years we have raised over $700,000 !”

amfAR has dedicated their work in the pursuit of finding the cure for HIV/AIDS. Back in 2014, they launched their  Countdown to a Cure for AIDS, a research initiative aimed at creating the “scientific basis of a cure by the end of 2020”.  Over $100 million has been invested into a strategy development, created to range of scientific approaches with the potential to achieve HIV remission or cure.
