In Honor of “World Aids Day,” Join Lifebeat’s #MusicFightsAids Campaign

#TaniaOnTheScene - In honor of World AIDS Day, December 1st, the biggest names in the music and media industry are joining Lifebeat; Music Fights HIV/AIDS to draw urgent attention to the dramatic rise in HIV among young people.

Since its inaugural benefit concert in 1992 with the Pet Shop Boys and Salt-N-Pepa to its 2013 MTV Video Awards Pre-Party with Robin Thicke and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lifebeat has been on the front lines of rallying the music industry to educate young people that AIDS is a preventable disease.

On November 29th, Lifebeat will kickoff #MusicFightsAIDS, a multifaceted nationwide campaign aimed at raising awareness of the sharp increase in HIV among young people. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that over 1,000 young people ages 13-24 are newly infected with HIV each month in the U.S. alone, an increase of nearly 20% from previous reports. Even more troubling is that an estimated 60% of young people with HIV have never been tested, are not being treated, and may unknowingly be spreading the disease.

Heavyweight Boxer Tommy Morrison Dies at 44

#TaniaOnTheScene - Tommy Morrison's career reached its pinnacle on a hot June night in Las Vegas, when he stepped into the ring and beat George Foreman to become heavyweight champion.

It reached its nadir when he tested positive for HIV three years later.

The last 20 years of the brash boxer’s life would be defined by extensive legal troubles, erratic behavior and mounting health problems. Morrison would later claim that he never tested positive for the virus that causes AIDs, even as he was hospitalized during the last days of his life.

Morrison died Sunday night at a Nebraska hospital. He was 44.
