PASO, Texas (KTSM) — El Paso native Khalid said the weight of Saturday’s mass shooting at the Cielo Vista Walmart has been weighing heavy on him.
As a result, he says he is planning a benefit concert later this month. All of the proceeds will go to families affected by Saturday’s shooting. Official time and location hasn’t been announced.
Khalid has been a proud supporter of El Paso. He is a graduate of Americas High School. He references El Paso and locations around town in his breakout album ‘American Teen,’ and named his EP ‘Suncity’ in honor of his beloved hometown.
