For the twenty-fourth year, the HIV/AIDS epidemic grabs a boost towards awareness, prevention, education and total eradication with the longest consecutive running benefit-- DIVAS SIMPLY SINGING.
The actress, singer, producer, philanthropist and all around DIVA--Divinely Inspired Victoriously Anointed-- founder Sheryl Lee Ralph took the stage; to say the evening was to be electrified would be a grave understatement.

DIVAS SIMPLY SINGING
24th annual HIV/AIDS BENEFIT
The night started off with Ralph's Divas in training, average age of fifteen years old, a group Ralph found from You Tube named Auburn Road. With harmony that descended from heaven, these angelic voices made us stand up before we could solidly get in our seats.

Then a relatively new Diva graced the stage. A quiet confidence surrounded her just before she was set to perform. Her name is Angie Fisher (Recording Artist) and by the time she finished, not only did she receive a well-earned standing ovation, the stage was left ablaze. Not sure you know who she is? Listen to the song below. When I thought my goose bumps could rise no higher, Alex Newell (Glee) stepped on the stage and he intensified the flame Fisher left behind.

The night concluded with information about the re-rising statistics of new HIV/AIDS cases especially amongst communities of color and the LGBT communities. We are charged to get tested, be informed, steadfast and to fight.
