(NECN: Julie Loncich, Boston) - St. Mark's Church in Dorchester was full of music and love on Saturday night.

The Church hosted a concert to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, in particular the Richard family.

Martin Richard, 8, was one of the three fatal victims of the attacks. Martin's y-year-old sister, Jane, and mother also suffered serious injuries.

At Saturday's concert, two organizations that counted Jane as a member put together a concert to help her family recover.

"We've all gone through an awful lot. And we need to do something where the community felt they could do something," said Melissa Graham, who attended Saturday's concert.

The Boston City Singers and Jane's Irish step dance group both performed, with all the proceeds going to benefit One Fund Boston and the Richard Family Fund.
