Lynchburg, VA - Wednesday Lynchburg native and national recording artist Phil Vassar made a stop in downtown Lynchburg.
Vassar played for a crowd of about 150 people at the Tresca on 8th ballroom. Proceeds from the event went to support the Miller Home of Lynchburg. He took song requests and interacted with the audience, while singing hits from his almost two-decade-long career.
Concert goers say its nice to see someone famous give back to their hometown.
"He's just a genuine person. And for him to come back every year and to raise money for a local charity, a place where he grew up, I think is phenomenal," said Tracy Davis.
Vassar will play another charity concert Thursday night at Phase 2. You can still by tickets at the Phase 2 Box Office or at the Miller Home.
