Cody Wickline and friends rock Beckley to aid flood victims

BECKLEY (WVVA) -

Saturday at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center, local country star Cody Wickline and his friends are holding a benefit concert to help flood victims of West Virginia.

The concert kicked off Saturday morning at 11:00 and lasted until 11:00 in the evening.

100 percent of the proceeds from the concert will go to aid those affected by last months flooding.

When everything happened, I really wanted to do something and I didn't know what exactly to do,” Wickline said. “And I thought, what better to do than try and use my talent and get other people and other talented musicians across the area to come out and try to come together and do what we can to try and help out our neighbors."

Wickline says he couldn't have done it without the help of the show's sponsors who funded the entire event.

Other performers included Thomas Wayne Danley, Ricky Cooper and Band, 2 Johns, Common Ground, Joanna Young, Parachute Brigade, Lilly Brothers, Emily Kinner, and fellow “The Voice” contestant Kelsie May.
