Madam CJ celebrates life on World AIDS Day

Posted By on Wed, Nov 30, 2011 at 4:01 PM


You’d think World AIDS Day (which, as it sounds, is designed to put the focus on the international epidemic) would be a day of somber reflection. But for local soul scenester/singer/dancer Madam CJ, World AIDS Day is a time for celebration; that’s evident in the fact that, come Dec. 1, she — along with a host of poets, vocalists, dancers and more — will be ringing in the day with a special performance at the event Arts Coming Together to end HIV.

The affair is being sponsored by the nonprofit organization SisterLove Inc. — which is on a “mission to eradicate the adverse impact of HIV/AIDS and other reproductive health challenges.” For Madam CJ, her part in the upcoming proceedings is more than just another chance to get on stage. “I like to give back. I enjoy it,” she says. “It’s my duty as a human being.”

Still, her performance is yet another opportunity to spread the word about her latest R&B-soul-pop-house-flavored album, That’s Madam 2 U!, which was released April 2011 — and is available now on CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, Last FM, or, Madam CJ says, “From me!” Expect to hear at least one track from that album tomorrow — one that’s been re-imagined by an internationally known ATL resident — in a stripped-down format.

“I’m gonna do the Daz-I-Kue remix of my single ‘Smell Urself.’ I usually have dancers for this song, but they wont make this show,” says Madam CJ, "so I gotta make it do what it do!”

Arts Coming Together to end HIV. Free. 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thurs., Dec. 1. South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Bunker Road SW, College Park. 404-505-7777.

Bonus: Here’s a little listen and look at the lady:
