Proceeds from the event will support Do It For The Love's mission to bring children with severe challenges, people with life-threatening illness and wounded veterans to live music concerts. Co-founder Michael Franti shares, "My wife Sara and I started Do It For The Love in 2013, because we wanted to bring the healing power of music to those who need it most. Our goal is to give the gift of live music to inspire joy, connectedness and a positive, potentially life-changing experience to as many people in need as possible."
Michael Franti is a musician, filmmaker and humanitarian who is recognized as a pioneering force in the music industry. Long known for his globally conscious lyrics, powerful performances, and dynamic live shows, Franti has continually been at the forefront of lyrical activism, using his music as a positive force for change.
To date, Do It For The Love has granted over 600 musical wishes to concerts ranging from Motley Crue to Ziggy Marley, Stevie Wonder to Train, Kenny Chesney to Paul McCartney. Whenever possible, the experience includes a meet and greet with the artist. Wish grants include concert tickets for the recipient and up to three friends, family or caregivers. "We know that illness is family-centered," co-founder Sara Franti said. "I know that more than ever since my Mom was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. We want to acknowledge the care-givers and families, knowing it is a 24/7 job for most of them. The impact of sharing a night of music and joy is as meaningful to the them as it is to the recipient."
