With barely enough room to fit everyone inside the Murdock Theater, Linda Grant wasted no time picking a seat Saturday night.
"A lot of times we want to get involved and we really don't know how to, so this was an opportunity to get involved and to contribute."
She and more than 500 others pack the theater to hear a little music and give their support to a cause they fear is being forgotten.
Money raised from Saturday night's event will go towards supporting those in Haiti, recovering from a January earthquake.
Rev. Kevin Graham tells Eyewitness News, "We realized that there was no collective effort here in the Wichita area, particularly in the African American community and many people had forgot about them. We wanted to let them know they were not forgotten."
13 African American organizations came together to put the concert on, hoping their unity can help change poverty.
"A crisis could come here in America and we may need their help one day so we thought we would come together in a collective effort to help them," adds Rev. Graham.
Grant adds, "I want to support and that was the way I knew I could support."
The goal was to raise $9,000. Organizers say they well exceeded that goal.
