Aids Benefit Gets Star Studded Help: Watch Here

November 30, 2017 - 6:30am

Kristen Bell, Ashton Kutcher, Bono, Rita Wilson, DJ Khaled, Bryan Cranston and Sean "Diddy" Combs joined Jimmy Kimmel on Late Night Tuesday night to sing “We’re Going to Hell,” in honor of the annual SHOPATHON(RED).

(RED) was founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to benefit AIDS in 2006. Since its founding, it has delivered $500 million to the Global Fund, which funds HIV/AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa.

  • The tune was written by The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers.
  • Barack Obama also appeared via pre-recorded video message Tuesday. "I know we live in a time when cable news and our Twitter feeds can make it feel like cynicism is everywhere," said Obama. "But when it comes to the fight against HIV/AIDS there is some genuinely good news to share."
  • More than half of all people living with the virus were on medication and AIDS-related deaths have been slashed in half, he said.
  • "When we reject cynicism and pessimism in favor of a relentless optimism that says 'however long it takes, however lonely the fight,' each of us can make a difference. That's what I believe," Obama concluded.
  • World AIDS Day 2017 falls on Friday, December 1st.
