Scottsboro, Alabama will hold a benefit concert next month aimed at helping the victims of this week’s deadly boat fire at Jackson County Park.
The event, dubbed #JacksonStrong, will take place on February 21 at Scottsboro’s Collins Elementary School and feature a headlining performance from Grammy-nominated Christian group The Martins. Artists New Ground, The Interstate Quarter and comic Mickey Bell will also take part in the effort, with Mtn. Lakes Chamber of Commerce participating as one of the five sponsors. General admission and VIP tickets are available for $10 and $25, respectively.
The Alabama region caught national attention when a fire broke out at the Jackson County Park dock Monday morning. Eight were killed in the fire, the cause of which remains under investigation. Among the victims were a local mother and her five children, ages 7 to 19.
Those in attendance of the benefit concert will likely hear songs from The Martins’ latest record Still Standing, which garnered them a Grammy nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album in 2018 and featured tracks “Still Sanding” and “Days Like This.” The sibling trio has also earned multiple Dove Awards throughout their two-decade career.
