The concert at the Don Haskins Center Sunday night included appearances by Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, actor Matthew McConaughey and other artists.

Khalid says the money will go to the El Paso Community Foundation which has a fund set up to benefit the victims of the mass shooting at Walmart.
