Spreading the word to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS among America's youth. That's the ongoing quest of Lifebeat: Music Fights HIV/AIDS. Since 1992, the national nonprofit has rallied the music industry through artist PSAs, events and various campaigns to raise awareness about the disease.
In late August, Lifebeat hosted an MTV Video Music Awards pre-party at New York's Terminal 5, headlined by Robin Thicke and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Now the organization has kicked off its latest campaign, #MusicFightsAIDS, in honor of World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.
