A 13–year–old Lincoln girl with quite a set of pipes is singing for a good cause Friday night.

McKenzie Steiner, lead singer of McKenzie Jalynn and the Renegades, will be raising money for two special charities; The Make–A–Wish Foundation, and “Believe,” a charity she started to help sick kids.

“Believe,” which is also the name of McKenzie’s first song, raises money to give kids in hospitals teddy bears while they recover.

She says touching people with her music, is what the concert is all about.

“I really like seeing people smile and happy. I’m just so thankful for everybody that’s going to come out and support,” she says.

The concert is free, but donations are encouraged. The goal is to $10,000 for the charities.

Aside from music, there’ll be prizes, games, and food.

The concert is from 6 p.m. to midnight at 710 Hill Street Banquet Hall.
