This summer, it appears the beat will go on for Juanes…
The 39-year-old Colombian superstar will headline the Beat Goes On IV, a concert to benefit Lifebeat, Music Fights HIV/AIDS in Washington D.C.
It’s the latest cause that Juanes, a well-known social activist, will be lending his voice to. He’s been a staunch advocate for a wide range of causes, including the worldwide elimination of land mines and pre-school education in Latin American countries.
This year marks the 20th anniversary for Lifebeat, a non-profit organization dedicated to reaching America’s youth with a message of HIV/AIDS and STD prevention.
Gary Dell’Abate, Lifebeat’s newly appointed Board president released a statement to the media, saying, “In honor of this milestone anniversary, we are thrilled to have Juanes headline the Beat Goes On concert to help us raise funds and awareness to fight this preventable disease.”
The concert is affiliated with the International AIDS Conference (IAC), which, for the first time in three decades, will take place in North America due to President Obama having lifted the ban on people with HIV traveling to the U.S.
The Beat Goes On IV concert will take place July 26
