Destiny’s Child, ’NSYNC, Monica, Wyclef Jean, and Joey McIntyre will mark the observance of World AIDS Day on Wednesday with a concert in New York benefiting LIFEbeat, the music industry’s fight against AIDS.Fans who can’t make it to the Beacon Theater for Wednesday night’s concert are urged to head to www.levi.com for a live Webcast of the proceedings. The jeans company will donate one dollar to LIFEbeat for each user who logs on for the show (up to a maximum total donation of $50,000). “LIFEbeat felt like we could reach a lot of young women, especially women of color, and since one out of four people who are infected with HIV are women, young women, we felt it was important for us to be a part of this,” Destiny’s Child’s LeToya told MTV News’ John Norris of the group’s reasons for turning up at the show. “It’s a very important issue
for us,” ’NSYNC’s Lance Bass told MTV News. “Hopefully if we all got together, we can find a cure someday.” Wednesday will be a busy night for the men of ’NSYNC, as the group will also be at New York’s Rockefeller Center along with Britney Spears and Enrique Iglesias for the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.
