Khalid revealed that he is planning a benefit concert for the victims affected by Saturday’s mass shooting in his adopted hometown of El Paso, Texas.

The R&B singer took to Twitter on Monday to share his plans for his upcoming concert this month. Khalid announced that all the proceeds will go to those affected by the shooting.

America is hurting after 21-year-old Patrick Crusius shot and killed at least 22 people in an El Paso Walmart on Saturday.

“Over the past few days, my mind and heart have been heavy. Hearing/seeing an act of terrorism happen so close to home, my family, and my friends has been unbelievable and shocking. Singing “915” and “city of El Paso” on tour every night feels indescribable,” Khalid wrote.

Khalid continued, “Over the past few days, I’ve been thinking of ways to help out and support the city. I’m planning for a benefit concert later this month, all of the proceeds will go to the families affected by the shooting. Sending everyone my love and will keep you guys updated.”

“Also, sending my love to Dayton, Ohio America is hurting right now,” Khalid said in another tweet.

“I didn’t feel like I had a home until I moved to El Paso,” Khalid told USA Today in 2017. “The love and the friendships I made were influential. El Paso is where I started. I don’t feel like I’d be making the music I’m making now if I hadn’t gone there.”
