A benefit concert was being held for Albuquerque Heading Home – a collaboration of public, private and non-profit organizations united to end homelessness.

“Everybody at Heading Home, they are true believers in this,” Mayor Richard Berry said. “They were doing this long before I was the mayor, and they’ll be doing it long afterwards. So now, the next mayor can jump right on board and make it their passion as well.”

Berry was also recognized with a special honor during the concert – he got the chance to play guitar himself during one of the acts.
