EMMIS Alternative WRXP/NEW YORK PD/morning host LESLIE FRAM will return to her old ATLANTA stomping grounds to host a special benefit event on MAY 29th, as the HARD ROCK CAFE ATLANTA and Producer SIMON ILLA's UNBREAKABLE MUSIC FOUNDATION team up for MIND FOR MUSIC.
The goal of the event is to raise money to purchase special equipment which allows those with specific types of physical challenges to be able to create music without the use of traditional instruments. Music is a creation of the mind, and those who have talent should have the opportunity to create music even if they lack the ability to us a guitar, or piano or horn or drums.

ILLA, who uses a wheelchair, said, "Sometimes I wonder where I would be in my career if I could have had the tools to explore my interest in music earlier in life. Now that I have made my way within the mainstream music industry, I feel it is time to think about the next generation, the next child or children who should have access to the equipment that will provide the opportunities to explore and learn music 'hands on' despite phuysical disability."
The event will take place on MAY 29TH at the HARD ROCK's VELVET UNDERGROUND, 215 PEACHTREE ST. NE, ATLANTA, GA 30303, and will feature performances by ILLA-produced artists, including VONNEGUTT, WABI SABI and CHARLIE HEFFLEY.
