Michael Franti & Spearhead coming to the MACC
KAHULUI – Michael Franti & Spearhead will perform on May 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
Franti is a musician, singer-songwriter, 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.
Franti believes that there is a great battle taking place in the world today between cynicism and optimism, so he made his most recent album, “Stay Human Vol. II,” to remind himself, and anyone else who’s listening, that there is still good in the world, and that it is worth fighting for. The album soared to the top of the charts, including #1 on Billboard’s Independent Album Sales and #1 on iTunes Top Albums.
“I make music because I believe it can change people’s lives and make a difference in the world,” said Franti. “Music gives us new energy and a stronger sense of purpose.”
He and his band Spearhead, known for their authentic and uplifting music, have found global success with multi-platinum songs like “Say Hey (I Love You)” and the chart-breaking 2010 release, “The Sound of Sunshine.”
Tickets are $29.50, $39.50 or $49.50 (prices increase on the day of the show); call 242-SHOW or visit www.MauiArts.org.
