LIFEbeat is dedicated to reaching America's youth with the message of HIV/AIDS prevention. LIFEbeat mobilizes the talents and resources of the music industry to raise awareness and to provide support to the AIDS community.
Every hour of every day, two young people between the ages of 13 and 24 are infected with HIV. Recognizing that music plays a significant role in the lives of young people, LIFEbeat has carved out a unique niche by effectively using the power of music to reach this population. LIFEbeat strives to cultivate a strong sense of self-worth and self-respect in youth to help them resist negative influences that may lead to engagement in risky behaviors. Through our Outreach programs, LIFEbeat reaches hundreds of thousands of at-risk youth with the message of HIV prevention and education.
LIFEbeat's Hearts and Voices program brings the gift of live music to thousands of people living with AIDS at facilities throughout New York City including hospitals, hospices, residential facilities and treatment centers. Every week, talented musicians from all musical genres volunteer their time to play shows for the most appreciative of audiences. Because most people in these facilities are not able to go out to enjoy live music and entertainment, Hearts & Voicesbrings the beat of the city to them.
