Michael Franti & Spearhead Headline Annual Music For The Soul
Kids in a New Groove, an Austin charity, announced today that Michael Franti & Spearhead will headline their annual Music for the Soul fundraising event on September 20, 2012 at the Long Center for the Performing Arts in Austin, Texas.
The money raised is used to fund for Kids in a New Groove’s music mentorship program for foster youth. Students take weekly private lessons, perform in recitals, make their own records, and earn their own brand new musical instruments. Something is going good when you have over 350 Texas youth in foster care having already benefitted from the program by building confidence, attending college, improving grades, and making lasting friendships.
