Fans paid tribute to Kidd Kraddick

Posted: Updated:

Friends and fans got the chance to honor the late DJ Kidd Kraddick Thursday evening in Dallas.

The 106.1 KISS FM and nationally syndicated host died suddenly last month while he was attending a charity golf tournament in New Orleans. The coroner determined he had a heart disease.

A tribute for him began at 5:30 p.m. Thursday outside the American Airlines Center in Dallas. It included a free public concert featuring Ben Folds.

Then acts like the Jonas Brothers, Jason Derulo, Andy Grammer, Cimorelli and Tim Halperin performed at the House of Blues. 

People who knew Kraddick best say his legacy was his charity. Kidd's Kids took sick children on a trip to Disneyworld, so they could forget about their illnesses and just enjoy being kids.

"The thing that was most evident was just the love for his charity," Caroline Cradick, Kidd Kraddick's daughter, said. "You always know because he was always involved, but I think the amount of influence he had on people, I had no idea - because to me, he was my dad."

All proceeds from Thursday night's concerts go directly to the charity.
