Mark you calendars, this June 27 is National HIV Testing Day. And to help spread the word, Colombian superstar Juanes recorded a special PSA YouTube clip.

El Rockero filmed a :30 video telling his fans to get tested for HIV. He emphasized that the virus spreads rapidly and could turn into an epidemic if people don’t follow through with their checkups.

“Did you know that in America, there are more than one million people living with HIV?” he says in the video. “Be sure to get tested. In just 20 minutes, you can find out the results.”

We, for one, were pretty astonished by that stat and commend Juanes for keeping his fans educated. He also highlighted the Twitter hashtag #Test4Life and directed viewers to Lifebeat.org for further information.
