Elida was asked in a recent interview on why she was doing this event she said “The reason I want to do it is that I want to give back to my community, not just Mercedes, but the RGV, and really give back to the music industry, “Our goal is to get $10,000 scholarship money so that we can give back to the young generation. And really what my goal is to do is to buy instruments for kids who want to continue and who want to pursue a career in the music industry.”
