Philadelphia FIGHT and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia seek to motivate 1,500 young people to get tested for HIV by offering a free Hip Hop Concert on National HIV Testing Day.

Teenagers and young adults aged 13-24 will receive a free ticket to see Grammy nominated Hip Hop recording artist Wale if they get a free HIV test at a variety of participating locations throughout the city on or before June 27, 2014.

In just six years, Wale has catapulted from local sensation to hip hop hierarchy. World renowned, critically acclaimed, and street heralded; Wale has recorded with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Pharrell Williams, among others. His hit singles “Slight Work,” “Sabotage” and “That Way” all became blockbusters. Wale’s recording of “Lotus Flower Bomb” with superstar singer Miguel” received a Grammy nomination. “Bad,” a Wale/Tiara Thomas collaboration, hit #1 on the Billboard Urban charts.

Ticket holders will also be entered to win tickets to see Beyoncé and Jay Z at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday, July 5th

Concert tickets are non-transferable, limited to one person, and available only while supplies last.
