“David Francisco’s life was permanently changed last April when a distracted driver ran a red light and T-boned him while he was riding his bike home from the world-renowned Blackbird Academy in Nashville, where he was studying music production. The initial spinal cord injury prognosis was devastating and landed the 24-year old singer/songwriter at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta fighting to regain his ability to walk while longing with deep desire to make music again.

During Grammy week this year, MusiCares honored Francisco at their Annual Gala Benefiting the MusiCares Foundation®. ”David is an extraordinary young man,“ said Debbie Carroll, Senior Executive Director of MusiCares. ”He has faced one of the biggest challenges one could ever face.”David’s music is a combination of acoustic and R&B reminiscent of Ben Rector, John Mayer and John Legend. His songs reflect real life stories and emotions that connect with listeners. Herb Trawick, ex-music industry executive and co-host/producer of the Pensados Place said ”David’s a star…he’s not trying to be…but he’s got all the stuff that makes you special.”

Also featuring host Hallerin Hilton Hill and special guests multi-Dove award winning artist Cindy Morgan and James Trimble of The Dirty Guv‘nahs.

Come prepared to be inspired by music, film and story.”  -Via Bijou Theatre Website
