Jazz crooner Justin Hayford has been called “a superb talent” by the Chicago Tribune and a “hip piano-playing saloon singer who should be heard more often” by Rex Reed.

On his fourth CD, Here I’ll Stay, Justin and his jazz trio perform classic standards from some of the greatest songwriters in American history — like Irving Berlin, Jimmy Van Heusen, Cy Coleman and George Gershwin. He also includes Tim O’Brien’s endearing folk waltz “Like I Used to Do,” Mike Dowling’s clever western swing tune “Nothing Could Be Better,” and Ron Sexsmith’s poignant pop ballad “It Never Fails.”
 More importantly, Justin is letting you pay whatever you want for his new CD—and all the proceeds will go directly to AIDS Legal Council of Chicago, an organization that provides free legal services to impoverished men, women and children with HIV.

It may be hard to believe that people with HIV still face mistreatment, stigma and discrimination in this day and age, but AIDS Legal Council of Chicago must fight every day to make sure their clients are treated with the dignity and compassion that every person deserves. 

 Founded in 1987, AIDS Legal Council of Chicago works to preserve, promote, and protect the legal rights of men, women, children, and families in the metropolitan Chicago area impacted by HIV and AIDS. The Council provides free direct legal services to people in need, educates the public about HIV-related legal issues, and advocates for social policies that ensure fair treatment for all people affected by HIV and AIDS.
