Chuck Mangione Performs For Plane Crash Victims
Gerry Niewood and Coleman Mellett were among passengers on the jet which came down near New York's Buffalo Niagara International Airport killing all 49 people on board.
The band's concert in Buffalo the following night was canceled as a result of the loss.
And Mangione has kept his promise to play in the town with a special tribute concert raising money for people affected by the disaster.
More than 200 tickets were donated to victims & families and residents living near the crash site, with the proceeds going to the Town of Clarence Flight 3407 Memorial Fund.
Mangione also teamed up with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra to pay for concert-goers to attend a special aftershow party.
