Artists Respond to Orlando Attack With Music18th June 2016 • No comments
In the wake of last week’s hate-fueled rampage in Orlando, the music community is responding the only way it knows how: Songwriters are writing songs and singers are singing them.
Christina Aguilera has released a new single, “Change”, which she’s dedicated to victims of the Orlando attack. She’s also donating all proceeds from the single to those affected by the tragedy. Read her full statement HERE.
Melissa Etheridge wrote “Pulse” for the Orlando victims and sings of the poetic injustice of a pulse being the very thing that keeps us alive and also being the name of the club where so many lost their lives and many others were critically wounded. The song will be available for purchase soon and proceeds will go to LGBT charities.
Our beloved Jill and Kate have also written a new song in support of love and those who lost their lives and were injured in Orlando. Their song “Same Side” was shared in their newsletter and on YouTube yesterday. We hope you share it along with the others.
