To commemorate World AIDS Day on December 1st and celebrate its 30th anniversary, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the world’s largest AIDS organization, will host a series of events across the world to continue to spread awareness about HIV and AIDS.
In Los Angeles, Grammy award-winning singer Mariah Carey and award-winning music producer and AHF Partner DJ Khaled will perform at a free concert event hosted by Mario Lopez and actress Laverne Cox on November 30th at the Shrine Auditorium, located at 665 W. Jefferson Blvd.
AHF Partner Debbie Allen and the Debbie Allen Dance Academy will also perform during the event. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Carey had to cancel her Nov. 27, Nov. 28 and Dec. 1 performances at the Beacon Theatre in New York.
The 47-year-old “All I Want For Christmas Is You” singer “didn’t reveal what her illness exactly is, in mid-November, she canceled her couple of holiday shows due to what she called an “upper respiratory infection” following the flu” as reported by Radar Online.
“Doctors have ordered a few extra days of rest before I can finally fly to New York and take the stage for my Christmas Tour. While this news disappoints me to share, I am grateful to be on the mend and for the support from all of you – it means the world to me! See you from the stage soon darlings!,” she wrote with a heart emoji.,
However, Carey will still be singing at a Nov. 30 benefit concert in Los Angeles for World AIDS Day, according to her website.
During the event, AHF will recognize the 5th anniversary of Impulse Group United, its international advocacy and empowerment group dedicated to promoting healthier sexual lifestyles among young gay men in 20 cities around the world.
The founder of Impulse Group United, Jose Ramos, and members of the group will receive The Chris Brownlie Community Champion Award named in honor of gay political activist and AHF co-founder Chris Brownlie. AHF will also present its Lifetime Achievement Award to a recipient to honor his/her contributions to the global fight against HIV/AIDS.
