The non-profit organization Deceased Daddy's Daughters held the first Sounds of Praise at veteran's Park Amphitheater.

Almost a dozen groups and choirs showed up to help honor the life, legacy, and memories of fathers who have passed away from illness, war, public officials serving in the line of duty, and violent crimes.

"Fathers don't get as much recognition as mothers and they're very important to the family but a lot of children don't have fathers. Today we just wanted to lift them up in praise and song," said Alfredia Drummer of Deceased Daddy's Daughters.

City commissioner Christopher pike read a proclamation from the city at the event.

it was free to the public, and donations will benefit Deceased Daddies Daughters.
