Fighting the War Against HIV/AIDS with Music

Lifebeat Hero: Veronica Webb

Besides serving on Lifebeat’s Board of Directors for many years, model Veronica Webb was instrumental in helping to organize and mobilize artist support for many of our biggest events and campaigns.

In 1994, she co-hosted The Beat Goes On concert, featuring Sarah McLachlan, Melissa Etheridge, k. d. lang, Seal, and more. Later that year, she co-hosted CounterAID, a national week-long fundraising campaign of in-store events by major music artists.

In 1996, Veronica was a co-host of BoardAID, an outdoor concert and winter sports festival featuring demonstrations from top pros on the skateboard halfpipe and snowboard halfpipe and other snow events.

Veronica continued to support Lifebeat through the mid-2000s as Lifebeat Board Member and helping to organize many events and fundraisers, as well as recording HIV/AIDS Public Service Announcements.

She continues to support Lifebeat to this day by donating items to Lifebeat auctions, such as Bid 2 Beat AIDS, the annual 10-day eBay auction starting on December 1st, World AIDS Day.
