Free Pitbull concert on Saturday to benefit injured Orlando Officer Kevin Valencia

Thousands of people are expected to turn out for a free concert by Global Superstar Pitbull on Saturday night in Orlando.

The free concert will be held from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. 

The concert is in honor of injured Orlando Officer Kevin Valencia. He was shot in the head during a standoff in June 2018, putting him in a coma that he has yet to come out of. Proceeds will go to him. 

Nacho and DJ Vice will also be performing.

Florida attorney Dan Newlin, who used to be a former law enforcement officer, said that "We can never allow our community to forget Officer Kevin Valencia and how he and his family continue to suffer and fight today. As a community, it is important that we show the highest level of respect and honor for Officer Kevin Valencia and having a free community concert is a great way to show our support for the Valencia family."

Newlin also said "Don't bring anything to the concert; just come show your support for the Valencia family."
