Posted By on Thu, Jul 7, 2016 at 11:43 AM

Interscope Records has just released "Hands," an all-star benefit single featuring over twenty heavy hitters from the pop world joining together as one mega chorus in a show of support for Orlando. Proceeds from this single will benefit victims and families of the Pulse shooting. 

The roster of musicians taking part includes Mary J Blige, Jason Derulo, Britney Spears, 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, Gwen Stefani, and Meghan Trainor. Songwriter Justin Tranter guided this project from start to finish. “It’s not an original idea,” Tranter told the New York Times, “It’s a classic one: musicians creating music to raise money and awareness.”

All proceeds go to Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the LGBT Community Center of Central Florida and GLAAD.
