Iconic musician Janet Jackson is set to headline this year’s World AIDS Day concert.
The concert will take place on December 1 at NRG Arena in Houston. The event is in support of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s (AHF) annual event benefiting HIV/AIDS awareness.
Also joining Jackson at the event as a speaker will be Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe award-winning choreographer, director and producer Debbie Allen.
In addition, AHF will present its lifetime achievement award to Emmy-winning actor and activist Blair Underwood.
“I’m so honored to be receiving this gracious award by AHF,” Underwood said in a statement, per Billboard. “We have had a long-standing partnership in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and there is still more work to be done.”
Tickets for the event can be purchased via Ticketmaster starting Monday, October 16.
