Hometown star, Phillip Phillips ready to rock the stage

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Mission Change benefit concert had six bands that will perform on stage, including a hometown super star.

Crews were out early Friday transforming the fairgrounds for the Music equals change concert that will benefit the local charity that helps people in need.

100 percent of the proceeds will go to those programs.

Tonight's headliner is Lee County native Phillip Phillips.

This is the first time he's performed at home since he won American Idol more than two years ago.

“He's excited and nervous at the same time. We've always said music brings people together. Be it speaks so many different languages. And who doesn't like to sit around with friends and hang out, listen to great music for a great cause,” said LaDonna Urick.

LaDonna Urick is Phillip's sister. She says he's been in town all week. You can still buy tickets at the fairgrounds.

The show starts at 7:00 P.M. and the parking gates close at 9 p.m.

This is the first time Music Change has had a fundraiser for the non-profit organization.
