Michael Franti and Spearhead at the Tabernacle 

November 9, 2013
November 9, 2013 - Michael Franti and his band Spearhead performed at the Tabernacle on November 8. Franti spent almost as much time singing and playing guitar in the crowd as he did on stage. One of the most poignant and emotional moments I have ever witnessed at a concert was when Michael and his partner Sara Agah brought Steve and Hope Dezember on stage. Steve has ALS, more commonly know as Lou Gehrig's disease, an incurable neuromuscular disease. Steve and Hope were the inspiration for Michael and Sara to start the Do It For Love Foundation, a wish granting organization that provides live concert experiences and Meet & Greets to people with advanced stages of life threatening illnesses.
