9 YEARS AGO AT ONE OF MY SHOWS: I met @Saraagahfranti at the Regina Folk Festival and we became very close friends for several years, then boyfriend and girlfriend and finally married in 2015! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are very different - which adds spice - but we share the same core values and determination. Our family motto inside our wedding rings is 'be your best, serve the greater good and rock out wherever you are!'
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday I met a couple in Nashville who met at one of my shows and are now getting married ❤️👍🏽Comment and let me know if you've found that special someone in your life or if you're still looking. Who knows you might find them in the comments section or at our next show! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

SOULROCKER FAMILY: One of my favorite parts of being on tour is meeting the #SoulrockerFam. Atlanta was sold out and filled with super high energy and I met so many amazing people. Every night I always walk into the audience post concert and each time it is so much more than snapping photos.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One woman I met told me she'd lost her brother two months ago and her and a friend had bought tickets to the show on the ride home from the funeral. Being there was the first night she'd really had a chance to let go. Another told me how she was battling depression and suicidal thoughts (I've been there) and a friend suggested she come to the concert and it made her feel hope again. 🙏🏾❤️💪
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hearing about people's stories like this makes me feel inspired and connected to the Soulrocker community.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comment and tell me something you're feeling inspired by or letting go of right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

FATHERS AND SONS: I took my son Ade' to visit my biological father. This was the first time meeting his grandfather so this was an exciting moment for all of us.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@saraagahfranti came with us to lunch and we spent the afternoon asking my birth father questions about how he met my mom and what he did for a living. He's 95 years old now and still in great shape and still intellectually sharp as a tack. 💪👍🏽
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a very emotional day for all of us. Good stuff.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comment and tell me something cool about your grandparents! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

ON THE ROAD AGAIN: We are off the bus for a few days, flew home to San Francisco to play a benefit show for the V Foundation then flew back to Atlanta with @saraagahfranti and my son Ade' to visit my biological dad and brother!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ade' has never met my biological dad so this is really big for both of us. I searched for my dad for 2 years and met him when I was 22. I only see him once every other year or so and he's 95 now so this is important. 🙏🏾❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last week we had amazing shows in North Carolina including Asheville where this picture was taken at the Bywater hang out spot where we had our #SoulrockerFam meet up after inner tubing the French Broad river. We get back on the bus Tuesday here in Atlanta. Yay!

FIGHT CANCER!!! Tonight We are performing in Napa at a fundraiser in support of the V Foundation. @saraagahfranti and I spent the day with Duke University and USA Olympic basketball's, Coach K who over the years has helped to raise over 170 million dollars in research money to eradicate cancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
V Foundation was inspired by NC State basketball coach Jim Valvano who died after a lengthy battle with cancer. My favorite quote from him is "if you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special!" Comment if you're having one of those days!

COMMUNITY. Hey #SOULROCKERFAM, people ask me all the time,"Is it cool if we bring the kiddos, to the concert"? YES!!! We are all about creating community - kids are an important part and are always welcome!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's why: When I was growing up hardly any families went to shows together. It was almost a rite of passage that teens would go to their first concert, get drunk, throw up all over themselves, then nearly kill themselves driving home. It should never be that way!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe music is something families should do together, whether it's in the kitchen, at the beach, in the car or rocking out at a show! Kids should grow up knowing what it's like to have a great time, and be part of a community that cares. ✌🏽❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comment if you've ever brought or thought about going to a show with family members.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Charlotte thanks for making it sweat soul last night! Asheville tonight! Check Facebook over the next few days for pics! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
