COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A Columbus concert promoter is starting the new year by giving back to those who lost everything in a recent tragedy in the Fountain City.

Anthony Hamiliton, Monica and Lyfe Jennings took the stage Friday night at the Columbus Civic Center and the promoters of the concert collected donations for a special cause.

The donations will go towards the families who lost their homes to a fire just before Christmas.

After an apartment complex on Martin Luther King Blvd in Columbus went up in flames, 39 people were left displaced.

"What better way to give back to the community when we got everybody in one room that is willing to help these victims?” said concert promoter J.B. Johnson.  

They were able to collect $3,600 from the concert to benefit the families who lost everything in the apartment fire.
