"Hands" a new song/tribute to the 49 victims of June 12th's massacre at Orlando nightclub, Pulse, has been put together by Interscope Records, with a roster of acts the likes of which we haven’t seen before.
The ballad features the repeated line, "I've been watching all this news/and seeing all this hate/tell me, is it wrong, to want a little change?"
It features the vocal offerings of 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.
The song's US proceeds will directly benefit Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, and GLAAD -- the nation's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy organization.
“Hands” was written by Warner Chappell writers Justin Tranter & Julia Michaels, and (Michael Diamond aka) BloodPop; produced by BloodPop, Mark Ronson, and Justin Tranter.
