United Way of Humphreys County will distribute 100% of the proceeds to the survivors and families of the victims.

The concert will also include video messages from NBC’s “This Is Us” actress Chrissy Metz and more to help raise funds for community relief.
Waverly is the hometown of Vaughn who noted, “Waiting over 24 hours to find out if my family was safe was terrifying. I’m grateful that my mom and the rest of my family are safe, but I know there are so many who were not as lucky. Now is the time for all of us to come together and give all we can to help build back ‘Waverly Strong.’”
