The story of Brandon Krstulovich being seriously hurt by a hit and run driver has captured the attention of our community. And people are trying to help the family deal with the medical costs of recovery.

Gospel music vibrated through the walls of the Lauderdale County Agri-Center Monday afternoon.

"We are having a Labor Day gospel celebration, featuring Paul Porter. It's a benefit program for little Brandon, the guy that got hit by the car," said organizer Keith Brown.

Brandon was hit by a car that ended up leaving the scene. That day marks a drastic changing point for the 10-year-old. He suffered severe head trauma. The gospel groups who participated wanted to make sure the transition is as easy as possible for him.

"It's one of those things where all of the gospel groups and all of the choirs got together and decided to help out," said Brown. "We know any time people go through a little tragedy, finances do become a problem, so we're trying to bless the family."

As the gospel groups belted beautiful melodies, Brandon was in each note. A portion of the proceeds from the benefit concert will go to him and his family. For the choirs, this was more than enough reason to sing.

"Also we're trying to bring the community together," said Brown. "We've got a lot of local artists on here showing the community that we can work together. And we want the people to come out and support us."

Well there was the audience to support the choirs and the choirs to support Brandon.
