AIDS Walk Los Angeles Receives Support From Local Billboard-Charting Artist
Innovation Entertainment and Dance/Pop Artist, Kwanza Jones, Add the AIDS Walk to their Mission of Supporting AIDS Awareness Month
(October 16, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA) Innovation Entertainment and two-time Billboard charting Dance/Pop artist, Kwanza Jones, accompanied Team Grindr this past weekend to participate in AIDS Walk Los Angeles. More than a singer and songwriter, Kwanza Jones has dedicated the entire month to focus on AIDS awareness projects. In addition to AIDS Walk Los Angeles, Jones will join former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant, Jessica Wild, to take part in OctoTea 17, an annual fundraiser for individuals in Central Texas affected by AIDS and HIV.
Grindr, the world’s largest, all-male social network, invited Kwanza Jones and Innovation Entertainment to advocate alongside them in Los Angeles’ monumental AIDS fundraiser. When asked about having the rising pop star accompany them for this momentous occasion, Team Grindr had this to say, "We were thrilled to have the talented Kwanza Jones join Grindr at AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2012. The money raised at this event directly benefits people living with HIV/AIDS, and having a visible presence both online and on the street increases awareness for our cause and lets us give love and support back to the community." - Scott Lewallen, Grindr Co-Founder.
Kwanza Jones established her dance-pop credentials in 2011 with her Billboard charting hit, “Think Again”, which spent three months on the Dance/Club Play charts. This song signaled the Supercharged sound for Jones, who is known for her never-ending energy, outspoken nature, and messages of strength and empowerment through bold, sassy lyrics. Jones says, “HIV and AIDS is a global crisis. Yet, the most effective way to show support is by mobilizing locally”.
