ATLANTA, Georgia (CelebrityAccess) — Live For Live Music and voter advocacy organization HeadCount are teaming up for Georgia Comes Alive, a one-day virtual music festival to promote voter participation in the upcoming runoff for Georgia’s two senate seats.
Music fans are encouraged to visit GeorgiaComesAlive.com and donate to the support local non-partisan grassroots organizations like Georgia Coalition for the People’s Agenda and CivicGeorgia. Those who make a donation of any size in advance will receive an email with a link to the stream on the day of the show.
The virtual event, powered by Nugs.net and Plus1, is the latest from the team behind Democracy Comes Alive, Quarantine Comes Alive and Justice Comes Alive, which collectively raised close to $300,000 for various charitable causes and garnered nearly two million views.

Committed to promoting involvement in democracy, HeadCount seeks to leverage the power of music to register voters, especially young voters.
