CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - “American Idol” winner Kris Allen plans a concert in his native Conway to benefit tornado victims.

Allen says the concert will take place Friday night at Fellowship Bible Church Conway. Tickets are $30 and Allen says all proceeds and donations will go toward tornado relief efforts in Vilonia and Mayflower.

Tickets are available at Fellowship Bible Church Conway and at certain First Security Bank locations in Conway, Vilonia and Mayflower.

Allen won the singing competition in 2009.
