AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the world’s largest AIDS organization and currently caring for people in 45 countries, returns with a special concert event—The L.A. Revival’—to commemorate World AIDS Day, formally observed internationally each year on December 1st. This year marks two significant milestones in the decades-long fight against HIV and AIDS: first, for the first recognition by the CDC of the virus that led to what is now known as AIDS (40 years ago, in June 1981), and second, the launch of AHF (35 years ago).
In Los Angeles at The Forum, AHF will host its sold-out, free 2021 World AIDS Day Concert on Wednesday, December 1st featuring renowned artists, OSCARⓇ and multi-GRAMMYⓇ winner Jennifer Hudson and multi-GRAMMYⓇ winner Christina Aguilera performing live, and multi-EMMYⓇ nominated comedian and internet sensation Randy Rainbow hosting the evening (8:00 pm -10:00 pm; media check in @ 6:30 pm). The concert will be produced with longtime AHF partner, multi-EMMYⓇ and TONYⓇ winner Debbie Allen and feature a performance by young students from her Debbie Allen Dance Academy (DADA).
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I, VT) will be honored with AHF’s Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be accepted by his wife Jane Sanders, along with a special video presentation. While still navigating the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, AHF will also acknowledge progress made in the longstanding fight against HIV/AIDS and continue to raise awareness about the significant work globally still to be done. Since the first cases were reported forty years ago, to date, 33 million have died of AIDS and more than 38 million people worldwide today are thought to be living with HIV, according to the CDC.
AHF’s 2021 World AIDS Day concert will also raise funds to benefit the Debbie Allen Dance Academy (DADA). AHF has raised a significant portion of funds with generous donations from Wells Fargo, City National Bank, Goldman Sachs and the Brotherhood Crusade.
An empowering evening of entertainment and advocacy, AHF will hold its World AIDS Day commemoration 2021 Concert at The Forum, featuring performances from Jennifer Hudson and Christina Aguilera, hosted by Randy Rainbow.
Doors Open: 7 PM, Showtime: 8 PM
