COLUMBUS, Miss (WTVA) - Columbus city leaders held a benefit concert Sunday to raise money for storm victims after the recent tornado.

Columbus residents came out and sang uplifting songs and shared words of wisdom to lift spirits and raise money.

Many local non-profit organizations were a part of the event and said helping the storm victims is the main concern at this time.

"We're hoping that as many people as possible come out and enjoy themselves and know that their money is going towards a worthy cause, which is building bridges of hope. It's a non-profit in our community, its been in existence for six years prior to the storm but now with the disaster happening it's showing another effort to continue that progress of doing things for the people," said Jabari Edwards.
