PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Thousands of people turned out for music and other fundraising events to benefit the families of 19 Prescott firefighters killed by the Yarnell Hill Fire on June 30 and Yarnell residents affected by the fire.

The event, dubbed "Prescott Strong," was held on Whiskey Row in downtown Prescott on Sunday.

Arizona native Jordin Sparks kicked off the event with the national anthem, and she sang "Amazing Grace" in honor of the fallen firefighters.

Actor Jon Voight spoke to the audience, saying he was encouraged to participate by a friend who lives in the area.

Another benefit concert, "Country Cares," organized by Phoenix native and country singer Dierks Bentley, is tonight in Prescott Valley. The event is sold out.
