This Sunday night, the Fillmore Detroit hold a special concert event to remember the late Kyle Pavone, vocalist for the band "We Came As Romans", and son of local Battle Creek business and community leaders Vince and Carolyn Pavone.

Megan Lassen, Community Events Associate with the Battle Creek Community Foundation, appeared with Vince Pavone on the 95.3 WBCK Morning Show with Tim Collins to promote the event and also the Kyle Pavone Foundation.   

Kyle Pavone died in August from an accidental overdose.  Vince Pavone says, "When the tragedy occurred we were trying to find ways to honor Kyle.   I reached out to Brenda Hunt, CEO of the Battle Creek Community Foundation and she provided a number of different options for a fund that would honor Kyle's memory."  The fund will help other musicians, who struggle with the trials and tribulations of trying to make it in the music business.
