HIV/Aids Know Your Status Concert Succeeds in Testing Over 1000 in Atlanta


“Know Your Status” Atlanta event succeeds in testing 1000+ African Americans for HIV/Aids.

Atlanta, GA, February 13, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The “Know Your Status” Atlanta kick-off event succeeded in testing over one-thousand African Americans to get tested for HIV/Aids. Promoting “Your Test Is Your Ticket” for admission, local business owner Econuel Ingram staged the concert for an audience of over 1700 at the Victory Church in Stone Mountain, Georgia, on Wednesday, February 7, 2007 featuring Verity recording artist Deitrick Haddon, Gospocentric recording artist Byron Cage, Lead Role recording artist Crissy Collins and other special guests. 

Ingram, CEO and founder of World Music International, an Atlanta based not-for-profit business, organized free HIV/Aids testing at various locations around Atlanta and at the Victory Church. Ingram said that the Know Your Status Atlanta testing effort met its goal and succeeded as a model that can motivate and educate people to help stop the spread of HIV/Aids in the African American community. “The line-up of top gospel performers helped draw attention to the HIV/Aids epidemic in our community. Your Test is Your Ticket brought people in to take the test,” said Ingram. 

Ingram organized World Music International to bring focus on HIV/Aids through music and entertainment. The disease has become an epidemic in the African-American community with African-Americans contracting 40% of all new HIV/AIDS cases. Organizations supporting Ingram in the Atlanta testing effort included NAACP National Office, Our Common Welfare, Dekalb County Board of Health, OraSure Technologies (HIV/AIDS testing kit manufacturer), Dr. Kenneth L. Samuel, Pastor and Organizer of the Victory Church, and Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA).
