Friends, fans and loved ones gathered Wednesday night at a club in Pomona to celebrate the life of Raul Alianza, also known as DJ Rowdy A.

The 21-year-old was killed in a car crash last weekend, along with his photographer, Alex Sonora.

The popular DJ was known for putting on clean, safe shows for young people and for inspiring them to make something of their lives.

"He is remembered as a positive person that never hated anybody, that just cared about everybody, and would give and give and give and never take for himself," said his brother, Jesse Alianza.

Proceeds from Wednesday's event benefit the families of the two men who died in the crash.
