At the Belvedere RED Pre-Grammy Concert featuring Mary J. Blige, Forest Whitaker was looking forward to seeing the multi-platinum artist perform.
"I think Mary is amazing, she's one of my favorite artists," Whitaker said. "She sings from her soul and her heart, and I'm really excited to see her tonight."
Whitaker also gave props to the RED campaign and how important it is to support AIDS awareness.
"Some places are devastated by what AIDS has done to them, many places in Africa are really struggling with that, all over the globe, and I think we're moving closer to a solution," Whitaker said. "And I think now we have people who can live with that and in the future, we'll be able to see that it will be something that's a thought of the past."
He believes that any effort to bring more attention to AIDS awareness and raise money for the cause is a good thing. Visit the RED campaign website to learn more.
