NBC's The Voice: A Superhero in the fight against HIV Stigma!

Just when I thought there would not be a break through, nationally, in the fight against stigma associated with HIV, last night at 8 pm I turned on my TV to tune in to my new favorite show NBC's The Voice and felt hope!

Jamar Rogers is a role model! He is a superhero! Last night before taking stage, Jamar openly disclosed his HIV status as well as shared that he is a recovering crystal meth addict. He showed the world that the one thing that matters most about who he is, is his voice!

Watch how he blew it up last night:

Carson Daly - thank you for personally handing Jamar his invitation to The Voice and hugging him on national television for all to see! Cee Lo Green! Thank you for taking him on your team! Thank you for hugging him on national TV! HIV is not something to be afraid of.

Jamar fueled my inner passion to continue to put life in over-drive and go after my dreams! Anyone living with HIV, who is thinking life might not be the same. . . who might be struggling how to move forward and live. . . well let me tell you that Jamar is one you should follow. There is no doubt in my mind that he will inspire many, and as a community, I hope we all give him our support!

Jamar. . . "Go kick some ass man! I am behind you 100%!!" Already, you are THE VOICE! Your courage to share your life so openly is truly magnificent! You have changed my life!

I am Daniel and I am living pozitively!
