Miami musician Pitbull will perform at a free Orlando concert in June to benefit the family of injured Orlando police Officer Kevin Valencia.

The concert will take place Saturday, June 1, at the Central Florida Fairgrounds and runs from 6 to 10 p.m. The event is produced by Orlando attorney Dan Newlin, a flyer posted on the Orlando Police Department’s social media pages states.

Valencia was shot in the head while responding to a domestic violence call in June and has remained in a coma following his injuries. He was being treated at Shepherd Center in Atlanta until he was moved to a Central Florida hospital last month.

A GoFundMe page for the family has raised more than $190,000.
