SAN DIEGO — A benefit concert held Sunday honored a little girl’s love of music and helped her family which has been grieving over her recent death.

Bbella benefitella Noble, a 5-year-old from Ramona, died last month after her mother accidentally hit her with the family minivan.

Hundreds of people gathered at Hoyt Park in Scripps Ranch Sunday for a tribute to Bella.

“Hug your kids, love your kids — because you never know when they’re never going to be here anymore,” said Bill Noble, Bella’s father.

Noble is a long-time sound engineer who has worked with the local bands that played during the benefit.

“When we found out about the tragedy, all the musicians wanted to pull together and support him and his family in their time of need,” said Tom Boyd, one of the organizers.

The benefit raised more than $17,000 to help the Noble family with Bella’s medical and funeral expenses.

Her father said he didn’t expect any benefit concert and that it reminded him of something a pastor recently told him.

“In a lot of ways, God comes to you through your friends.  And today…it’s just a really amazing, amazing day,” said Noble.
