Fighting the War Against HIV/AIDS with Music

Lifebeat Hero: Beyonce Knowles

Beyonce has been a supporter of Lifebeat’s mission since her days as lead singer of Destiny’s Child, and she continues to attend and support Lifebeat events.

Beyonce performed along with Destiny’s Child at the 1999 World AIDS Day Music With a Message concert alongside ‘N Sync, Wyclef Jean and Monica.

In 2002, Destiny’s Child made a surprise visit to a pediatric AIDS facility with Lifebeat’s Hearts & Voices program and sang Christmas carols to the children.

In 2007, Beyonce supported former bandmate Kelly Rowland‘s album release fundraiser to benefit Lifebeat.

Beyonce invited Lifebeat’s Tour Outreach program to participate on her Summer 2009 I Am… tour to distribute safer sex materials and prevention information to concertgoers.

She continues to support Lifebeat by donating several items to Lifebeat’s annual Bid 2 Beat AIDS eBay memorabilia auction.
