Today, Friday May 4th at 12 p.m. EST the POZ I AM Radio show hosts Robert Breining and Jack Mackenroth spoke with Jamar Rogers about his time as a contestant on The Voice.

This past Tuesday brought the end of the road for four contestants on The Voice, none more shocking to us than our friend Jamar Rogers. With only eight singers left in the competition heading into the elimination Tuesday, Jamar faced teammate Juliet Simms in a battle to represent Team Cee Lo in the finals. Cee Lo gave 60 points to Juliet Simms and 40 points to Jamar Rogers. When combined with America's vote, the final result of 121-79 in favor of Juliet. So our friend Jamar may not have won the title of the The Voice but he definitely won the hearts of America.

We also encouraged all of Jamar's Family (his fans) to call into the live show or tweet us and share their feelings about Jamar's journey.

Listen to our first interview with Jamar after disclosing his HIV status on The Voice here or read the transcripts of that interview here.

The Positive Pitch

I describe myself as a "positive person with purpose." My goal is to help people living with HIV/AIDS discover similarities in each other ... and form friendships. I want to ease the shock of a diagnosis and remind people that our dreams are not infected. I am also an HIV/AIDS cyber-activist, radio show host, blogger and social network guru.
