Kanye West visits Batesville for fundraiser concert


BATESVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) - Kanye West flew to Indiana Sunday to support a family band raising money for their upcoming tour.

The free concert at Walhill Farm in Batesville wound up raising around $4,000 for performers Victory Boyd and Infinity's Song, according to Walhill's Pete Hillenbrand.

Boyd posted about West's visit on Instagram, "Kanye came to support me and @infinityssong today in Indiana after a moving Sunday Service in Atlanta this morning."

According to Hillenbrand, West introduced the band and watched their performance.

He did not perform.

"It was very gracious of him to fly in for this show," Hillenbrand said in an e-mail to Eyewitness News.
