A "Silence the Violence" concert is helping encourage peace in the Birmingham area.

It was hosted by 98.7 Kiss FM at Kelly Ingram Park on Saturday.

Organizers say they hope it will reduce violence in and around the Magic City.

"We want to make sure that everyone understands the violence that has been plaguing our city. And there's still some good things going on in our city. This event is one of those good things that we've put together so everyone can understand that everything is not bad with our communities," said a 98.7 Kiss FM representative.

It was a free event with entertainment, food, drinks and activities for kids.

The event also showcased Birmingham R&B talent.
