Khalid recently announced that he plans on putting together a benefit concert together, in hopes to help the families of victims of the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.


Khalid tweeted, “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 have been unbelievable and shocking.  Singing ‘915’ and ‘city of El Paso’ on tour every night feels indescribable.”


Khalid also posted a follow-up tweet, “Also, sending my love to Dayton, Ohio.  America is hurting right now.”




According to Billboard, “On Saturday, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius shot and killed 20 people inside a Walmart in El Paso. Khalid was born in Georgia, but his family moved to El Paso when he was a junior in high school and has adopted it as his hometown.”


Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost someone during the El, Paso mass shootings.
