Ten Grand Forks High School students raised their voices tonight to help a man hurt in a motorcycle accident. They sang in a benefit concert for Jeremy Kvamme.

Kvamme was in a motorcycle accident last September. Family and friends say he must have misread a curve in the road and went into the ditch. He is now paralyzed from the waist down and has very limited use of his hands and no use of his legs.

The students performed two shows at the Firehall Theater in Grand Forks tonight. They say they picked "upbeat" songs to sing to try to help raise money for Kvamme's medical expenses.

"He just recently had a baby girl and so he's a dad now, and he's wheelchair bound. We really want to help him out and make him be the best dad he can be and raise some money to help him out, because I know it's got to be really expensive," said family friend and concert organizer Chloe Omlid.

Organizers say they were hoping to raise about $1,000 at the two shows tonight.
