The Dance (RED) Save Lives2 Album is now available on iTunes for pre-order.

(RED) is on a mission – to deliver an AIDS FREE GENERATION. In 30 years, AIDS has taken the lives of 35 million people. There is no cure yet, but there has been incredible progress, and we are at a critical time in the fight. Today, 900 babies are born each day with HIV- that number can be near zero. Every generation is known for something. Let’s be the one to deliver an AIDS FREE GENERATION.
