ARTISTS REACH OUT TO ORLANDO VICTIMS

GLAAD and Interscope have released a musical tribute to the victims of Orlando. The track, “Hands,” features an all-star cast (listed alphabetically): Mary J Blige, Jason Derulo, Tyler Glenn, Selena Gomez, Halsey, Ty Herndon, Imagine Dragons, Juanes, Adam Lambert, Mary Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, Kacey Musgraves, MNEK, Alex Newell, P!nk, Prince Royce, Nate Ruess, RuPaul, Troye Sivan, Jussie Smollett, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and Meghan Trainor

The tribute is available exclusively at iTunes. Proceeds from the sale of the single in the U.S. will benefit Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida and GLAAD.

“This senseless tragedy is a call to all of us to stand together and face down hatred, intolerance and violence…and having grown up a short drive from Orlando, it really brings it right to my doorstep,” said IGA chief John Janick.  “We all know music has the power to heal, and I’m honored and grateful to be a part of whatever our business can do to help.”

“Hands” was penned by Warner/Chappell writers Justin Tranter & Julia Michaels and BloodPop® with Pulse's Ely Rise and produced by BloodPop®, Mark Ronson and Tranter, who offered his thoughts:

"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 to volunteer my help anyway I could. Putting this charity single together is just a way for me and everyone involved to keep volunteering our help and promote peace and love in the world."
