BERKELEY COUNTY, W.Va. - A local singer will be returning to Martinsburg to perform at a big event. 

Christian Lopez gained national attention when he appeared on American Idol. These days, the Martinsburg native is part of the Christian Lopez Band. 

Lopez, along with two other acts, will perform at the Apollo Theater in Martinsburg on August 2, 2014.  

Organizers say 50 percent of the precedes will be donated to the Eastern Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross in memory of Lopez's cousin, Cynthia Snyder. 

"I love music, I love performing, I love creating. Just the artistry of being able to connect with another person just through music, through song, through messages. It's a great feeling," said Lopez.
