LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The city of Lexington has rallied behind Brandy Workman.

Earlier this month her life changed forever when police say a drunk driver collided head-on killing her 16-year-old daughter Hailey and 19-year-old son Andrew Smith.

For the past two days, Rickhouse Pub hosted a charity concert. A long list of musicians volunteered to play for free.

10 percent of the total profits from Rickhouse went directly to Brandy plus all the money from the auction. Brandy's daughter Hailey left behind a one-year-old daughter named Zoey that Brandy will be providing for.

"I'm so gracious of the outpour of support that we have in this community. My world is never going to be the same," said Brandy Workman.

A GoFundMe has also been set up to help.
