ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Several well-known Christian bands performed Saturday at Life Christian Center International.

Headliners Building 429 kicked of their 30 Seconds to Change tour to help victims of earthquake ravaged Haiti. Openers, Abandon and Mike's Chair, stirred up the crowd as they jammed to inspirational songs.

Before the concert, band members played basketball for special needs kids in Albany.

"A lot of times there are meet-and-greets where people walk in, sake your hand, and get autographs," said Building 429 lead singer, Jason Roy. "We just figured, we're all athletes and we love hanging out and having fun. This is an easy way for us to get to know people without the whole musician fan thing. This is just people hanging out."

Building 429 wants to eventually sponsor 4,000 children in Haiti. So far, they've helped 1,500. For more information on their mission, click here.
