After the tragic mass shooting at a Walmart in Texas this past weekend that killed 22 people and injured over two dozen others, many people are left grieving and wondering what they can do to help those affected. Khalid, who is an El Paso native shared on Twitter earlier today the heaviness he has been feeling and how he is even having a hard time singing songs while on tour that are about his city.

He goes on to add in another post that he plans on throwing a benefit concert later this month and intends on giving all of the proceeds to the families affected by the shooting.

A fan tweeted the artist asking if he could create a way for people who can not attend the event to donate in other ways like selling merchandise or potentially a website to donate money. Khalid responded by saying “Thought of those ideas too, just would want to do them the right way.”
