Janet Jackson is headed to Houston for a powerhouse performance.

The five-time GRAMMY®️ Award-winning artist will perform a full-length show for AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s (AHF) World AIDS Day Concert in Houston, Texas on December 1, 2023. Ticket sales from the concert will benefit HIV/AIDS awareness and are available online through Ticketmaster starting Monday, October 16, 2023.

World AIDS Day is an annual commemorative event to honor those we’ve lost to HIV/AIDS, to show support for those currently living with HIV/AIDS, and to emphasize the fight against HIV/AIDS is not over. Emmy, Grammy, and Golden Globe winning choreographer, director, and producer Debbie Allen will speak at the event, and AHF will present its Lifetime Achievement Award to Emmy Award winning actor and activist Blair Underwood.

Jackson’s upcoming performance comes on the heels of her North American Together Again tour, the highest grossing tour ever in her career, which derives its name from Jackson’s 1997 hit song “Together Again” – the artist’s personal tribute to a friend lost to AIDS as well as AIDS victims and their families worldwide. 

Two other stars will co-headline the World AIDS Day event. Longtime star choreographer, director, and producer Debbie Allen will serve as keynote speaker. Meanwhile, Emmy Award-winning actor Blair Underwood will receive the AHF Lifetime Achievement Award to Emmy for his work as an activist.
