All the proceeds from the show go to the families of the shooting victims.

Hillsboro police officer and country singer Kurt Van Meter also performed.

We wanted to provide the community a way to heal. We wanted (to give) them a way to support the families of the victims...so music is an amazing way to do that, he said.
