LATHAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – It has been two months since the car crash that left Colonie’s Niko Dinovo badly burned and he still has a long journey of healing ahead.

They say music has the power to heal. The School of Rock is hoping to help do just that for a local teen through One Night for Niko Thursday night.

“We’re coming together along with a lot of the community that has come together before…and we’re trying to help out a little more,” Jesse Calhoun, General Manager at the School of Rock in Albany, said.

Students from the performance-based music education school will participate in a concert at the Low Beat to benefit Niko. The concert was a suggestion from the school’s owner.“He was like we should do something and I was like yeah, that’s a great idea because we’ve got the community to do it.”
