“Doesn’t matter who you love…All that matters is your love.”
Selena Gomez, Brittany Spears and 24 other Interscope artists joined forces for the charity single “Hands” which was co-written by Justin Tranter, Julia Michaels and BloodPop. The song reflects on the mass shooting at Orlando nightclub “Pulse” June 11, which quickly and devastatingly became the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. modern history.
“The second I heard about this horrible tragedy where so many of my LGBTQ brothers and sisters lost their lives, I immediately got on a plane to Orlando,” Tranter said. “Putting this charity single together is just a way for me and everyone involved to keep volunteering our help.”
The full lineup of artists is as follows: Mary J. Blige, Jason Derulo, Tyler Glenn, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Juanes, Mary Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, Kacey Musgraves, MNEK, Alex Newell, P!nk, Prince Royce, Nate Ruess, RuPaul, Ty Herndon, Troye Sivan, Jussie Smollett, Meghan Trainor, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, Spears, Gwen Stefani, Adam Lambert and Selena Gomez.
Proceeds from the single will be donated to the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center and GLAAD.
“Hands” is available on Itunes. To further help the 49 victims of Orlando’s Pulse act of terror and senseless discrimination, a GoFundMe account was also created as aide. This can be accessed by clicking here.
