CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Hundreds of party-goers and celebrities filled the N.C. Music Factory Tuesday night to support wounded soldiers. The event was part of celebrations with the Democratic National Convention.

Musicians on Call sponsored the party in conjunction with RIAA. Musicians on Call delivers healing live, in-room performances to patients undergoing treatment or unable to leave their beds, according to the organization's website.

Rapper/actor Common headlines the event along with rapper/producer Jermaine Dupri.

Actress Keisha Knight-Pulliam was among attendees.

Common told Eyewitness News he was excited to be a part of the event.

"As an artist it's important to see what you can do and give back," he said.
