AOB Presents: David Francisco Benefit & Concert

  • Wedge at Foundation 5 Foundy Street Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)


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 bicycle 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.

Join Asheville On Bikes as we celebrate this comeback story in film and music.

David's music is a combination of acoustic singer/songwriter, and R&B reminiscent of Ben Rector, John Mayer and John Legend. His songs reflect his passion for living and emotions he's felt along the way, that connect with listeners.

During Grammy week this year, MusiCares honored Francisco at their Annual Gala. “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 recently has performed with Martina McBride, Steven Curtis Chapman, and shared his story live with Katy Perry. Everyone he meets becomes a friend, and all are inspired by his story and songs.

Come enjoy a special evening and celebrate great music and an inspirational story.

Special thanks to Asheville on Bikes for their support! 

Proceeds from the concert will benefit David's ongoing rehab expenses.
