Several Christian bands are Rocking the South for a good cause. Music is pouring out of Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson for Premier Productions "Rock the South" concert event.
Artists Manic Drive, Lecrae and family force five rocked the crowd of a few hundred people who braved the hot temperatures.
The proceeds from the event will go to support The Salvation Army's Disaster Relief.
"When they saw all the devastation, the three tornadoes we've been working and the two floods we've been working they said let's benefit The Salvation Army and what a God send that has been because it's the time and we need money right now, said Salvation Army Captain Ken Chapman.
Still to take the stage for the Saturday night event is the David Crowder Band and the Newsboys.
Tickets for Rock the South are being sold at the gate, ranging in price from $17 to $35 dollars.
Coming up at 10 p.m., we'll tell you why a church group from Woodville is protesting the event.
