Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote organization is teaming up with Live Nation Urban, ONE Musicfest, The New Georgia Project, BET, More Than A Vote, and others for a star-studded drive-in concert experience in Atlanta, ahead of the January 5 senate runoff election. “Celebrate Georgia!” will take place on January 3 at the Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta, GA, and feature performances by local and national talent, including Rick Ross, Monica, Jack Harlow, and others. Segments featuring Common, Jeezy, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, and Michelle Obama will also be featured throughout the event.
When We All Vote is a national, nonpartisan nonprofit that is on a mission to increase participation in every election. This year, the organization helped more than 18,000 Georgians get registered and ready to vote. In the lead up to the runoff, more than 3,000 Georgia voters registered with When We All Vote.
“Celebrate Georgia!” will remind voters of their power and inspire them to make their voices heard again on Election Day.
