Kelly Clarkson is a rock star, both on and off the stage. When she found out that her April 29th concert in Indonesia was being sponsored and promoted by LA Lights, a top Indonesian cigarette brand, she took action and dropped the tobacco sponsorship. Read the full story here.

The United States has long banned tobacco concert sponsorship because it's been proven to increase youth smoking rates, but Indonesia still allows it. Just like Kelly has done, artists everywhere need to continue to take a stand and send the message that just because it's legal doesn't make it right.

Before Kelly Clarkson dropped the tobacco sponsorship, fans everywhere wrote messages to encourage her to take a stand and protect her fans. Click here to see those messages.
Your message will be forwarded to Kelly Clarkson's agent, manager, record label, and fan club. Thank her for taking a stand and rejecting tobacco sponsorship. She stood up for her fans, now it's time to stand up for her!

Joe C. from Palo Alto, CA Says:
"Are we entirely sure Kelly was behind this? I guess that doesn't really matter- the right outcome was achieved.

Hopefully other artists take notice of all of the hubbub that surrounded this event and pay closer attention to who promotes their performances abroad." on 5/3 at 6:01pm
