'Texans for West' benefit concert in Dallas

DALLAS -

There continues to be an outpouring of support for victims of the plant explosion in West.

A benefit concert was held in Dallas Saturday at the ATt&T Performing Arts Center.

The Texans for West benefit concert featured performances by a number of artists including Johnathan Tyler and the Northern Lights.

Proceeds go to the "Texans for West Fund."

Fourteen people died and 200 others were injured in the blast on April 17th. Dozens of homes were badly damaged or destroyed.

"Everyone in Dallas who's ever driven to Austin has passed by West, Texas. Whether you've eaten kolaches there or gotten a ticket there like me, everybody knows that's the halfway point and when a tragedy strikes its an emotional connection to that town," said Becki Howard, a talent buyer for the concert.
