A most remarkable thing happened on May 11, 2009.
On that day, in The Alive with Clive TV Show MagEzine, I announced that I would be presenting The First Alive with Clive Top 20 Concert at Waltz-Astoria featuring three musical performers in The Alive with Clive Top 20.
The purpose of this concert is to continue to raise awareness about The Alive with Clive Top 20 and my goal to raise at least a billion dollars, for people suffering from AIDS in South Africa, from the sale of the Alive with Clive compilation CD (or a downloadable version) featuring a song from each musician who ends up in The Alive with Clive Top 20 on the day voting ends.
Through a remarkable coincidence, in a Press Release dated May 11, 2009, too, (RED) and Live Nation, the largest producer of live concerts in the world, announced that they are collaborating to link acclaimed artists, including Santigold, Gomez, O.A.R., Fall Out Boy, Lisa Hannigan, The Veronicas and The All-American Rejects, with their fans through the creation of (RED)NIGHTS, a series of 26 live concerts at select Live Nation clubs and theaters in the U.S. to raise money and awareness for the ultimate goal of eliminating AIDS in Africa.
As noted in their Press Release:
Bringing the (RED) experience to life in a new way, (RED)NIGHTS and the community of participating artists will come together to use great live music to raise awareness of (RED)’s primary objective – to help eliminate AIDS in Africa. With each live show, (RED)NIGHTS hopes to inspire fans to participate in (RED)’s mission, highlight the many ways to get involved beyond the concert and encourage people to share the message and experience with others. Ultimately, it is the goal of (RED)NIGHTS to build a community – of artists, concertgoers and music fans everywhere – that is passionate about helping to save lives in Africa. A portion of the proceeds of each (RED)NIGHTS concert goes directly to the Global Fund (theglobalfund.org).

Skeptics may doubt that 26 concerts will do much good, but in my opinion this announcement by RED and Live Nation, which produces over 22,000 concerts for 1,600 artists in 33 countries a year, and sold over 50 million concert tickets and drove over 70 million unique visitors to LiveNation.com during 2008, represents a GIANT step in the fight to eliminate AIDS in Africa.
When you look around and see the kinds of people who are able to generate massive support for different causes, you’ll realize that musicians who are famous have the power to create a major impact in a short amount of time.
Look back at major concert events in history: Live Aid in 1985, Live 8 in 2005 and Live Earth in 2007, for example, were all made possible by the immense popularity of the musicians involved.
So, when you become aware of the forces involved here, it quickly becomes apparent that musicians more than any other group have the capacity to cause major enhancements in living conditions all over the world – if their power is harnessed in the right way.
I am therefore pleased to see the announcement about the (RED)NIGHTS concerts because it represents a manifestation that influential executives in the entertainment industry and philanthropic circles are beginning to deploy this power possessed by musicians to make a sustained and powerful difference in the world systematically and synergistically.
Here is the Press Release I have just issued about the (RED)NIGHTS series of concerts:

Alive with Clive’s Clive Believes (RED)NIGHTS Live Nation Concerts Are A GIANT Step To Combat AIDS!
In a recent announcement, (RED) and Live Nation announced that 26 upcoming concerts will go (RED) to help combat AIDS in Africa. Skeptics might be wondering how much good it will do to have 26 concerts go (RED). But Clive Swersky, host and producer of Alive with Clive and creator of The Alive with Clive Top 20 believes that the announcement to have these concerts go (RED) represents a GIANT step on the road to the elimination of AIDS in Africa.
Last year, Clive announced his intention to raise at least a billion dollars for people suffering from AIDS in South Africa from the sale of a compilation CD (or a downloadable version) featuring songs of musicians he has interviewed on Alive with Clive who end up in The Alive with Clive Top 20 on the date voting ends, so he has been paying close attention to actions being taken by (RED) to eliminate AIDS in Africa.
“I commend the executives at (RED) for the innovative steps they are implementing — first with the creation of (RED)WIRE, their online digital music service, and now (RED)NIGHTS — to raise funds for the Global Fund To Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria,” says Clive, “and I look forward to collaborating with them soon to realize my goal of raising at least a billion dollars for the Global Fund from the sale of the Alive with Clive compilation CD.”
Coincidentally, on May 11, 2009, the same day (RED) and Live Nation made their announcement about the (RED)NIGHTS series of concerts, Clive also announced that The First Alive with Clive Top 20 Concert — to raise awareness about The Alive with Clive Top 20 and his goal to raise at least a billion dollars from the sale of the Alive with Clive Top 20 compilation CD for people suffering from AIDS in South Africa — will take place at Waltz-Astoria on May 30, 2009, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
This concert will feature three musical performers from The Alive with Clive Top 20: Anthony Melillo and The Melillo Brothers, Serotenen, and Jessica Labus. Anthony Melillo, who recently released his debut CD, Just Gettin’ Started, has been at the top of The Alive with Clive Top 20 since it’s inception. Serotonen is currently in sixth place and Jessica Labus is 11th.

Like (RED), the (RED)NIGHTS concerts also represent another dynamic example of synergistic philanthrocapitalismTM in action.
For those of you who are not yet familiar with the term, synergistic philanthrocapitalismTM, which I regard as “The exciting new way to do business so that everybody wins,” visit www.synergisticphilanthrocapitalism.com, the Web site I established where I explain the events leading up to the creation of this term. I have also outlined my plan there to raise at least a billion dollars from the sale of the Alive with Clive compilation CD, which I submitted to Google as part of my application to win funding through Google’s Project 10100.
If I were a musician in contention for a slot in The Alive with Clive Top 20, I’d be doing whatever I can to generate as many votes as possible on a daily basis because it’s highly likely that, due to these recent developments in efforts to combat AIDS in Africa, much more attention will be paid by music fans to musicians in contention for a slot in The Alive with Clive Top 20 in the weeks ahead. And if you are a fan of any of the musicians in contention for a slot in The Alive with Clive Top 20 and you want to see the musician or band you support benefit from the increased attention that is likely to be bestowed on musicians in contention for a slot in The Alive with Clive Top 20, it would be a good idea to rally support among your friends for the musician or band you are supporting and organize votes to be cast on a daily basis for the musician or band.
Additional interest in musicians in contention for a slot in The Alive with Clive Top 20 will also be generated when the upcoming contest to find The Most Inspiring Song Sung On Alive with Clive So Far! gets underway soon. Over the past few weeks, several of the songs that will be in this contest have been posted on this Blog and can all be found in one place in the archives on this Blog for “Inspiring Song Contest” under Categories.
