GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Wildfire Music Festival is not just any concert.

It will honor a musician who passed away too soon while also raising money improve children's lives with music.

Country star Vince Gill will headline the festival on June 14 at the White Oak Amphitheater in Greensboro.

Music starts at 3 p.m.

The festival will honor the memory of Brenna Marie Currie, who passed away in March of 2013 and held a passion for music throughout her young life.

Her family visited FOX8 Monday.

Brenna knew music could comfort, heal and help people find their voice.

Her deep belief in the healing power of music led her to pursue a Music Therapy degree at Appalachian State in Boone.

Proceeds from the festival will be used locally in the Greensboro area to bolster the I'll Fly Away Foundation's efforts to further opportunities for student scholarships and programs.

The festival will also feature Ranger Doug, Dawn Sears and Kenny Sears, The Greencards, The Gibson Brothers and Sierra Hull.
