Lyfe Jennings tour kicks off

By Bob Grossweiner & Jane Cohen

Platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer Lyfe Jennings kicked off his Baby I'm a Star summer concert tour in N. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on June 27. The tour continues through August 2 in Miami, FL.

In conjunction with the tour, Jennings is partnering with Music World Entertainment to launch a program in support of the "Heightened National Response to the HIV/AIDS Crisis Among African Americans," an effort led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to promote awareness, education and testing across the U.S. in response to the alarming HIV/AIDS crisis among African-Americans.

The program will be activated in each of the 22 cities where Jenning's tour will be making stops. As part of the initiative, local health facilities will be distributing "Lyfe Change" kits featuring important HIV/AIDS prevention and education resources as well as copies of Jenning's song, "It's Real," which addresses the epidemic.

"I have to use my voice to help raise awareness so that we can really bring an end to this thing," Jennings said in a statement. His third album "Lyfe Change" debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B charts in April. "This disease has affected all of our lives, but we can definitely do things to prevent its spread and to protect ourselves."
