Michael Franti Celebrates 1000th Recipient Of “Do It For The Love Foundation” In Atlanta [Photos]

Michael Franti & Spearhead performed a sold-out show at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday night. The evening also served as a very special occasion for the Do It For The Love Foundation,. Do It For The Love is a wish-granting nonprofit organization that brings people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to live music concerts. The foundation was started by Franti and his wife, whose experience as a Registered Nurse bridges the couple’s passion with expertise. Tuesday night’s show doubled as an awareness gathering and celebration of their 1000th recipient, with the first-ever recipient from the foundation (who has ALS and was too sick to attend the concert) thanking everyone for their amazing work. It was a complete family affair, and you could clearly see Franti’s wife and son enjoyed the celebration as well. The emotional event also included Zac Brown Band percussionist Daniel de los Reyes for the entire show, which helped the musical experience reach new heights.

Photographer Emily Butler was on-site to capture the special evening. Enjoy her photos below:
