When a number of talented singers join forces to raise money for the victims of last month’s Orlando shooting and their families, the outcome can only mean one thing; a very emotional and powerful song, full of amazing voices.
Co-written by Justin Tranter – a songwriter who’s worked with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani and more – Hands features vocals from 24 acts, including Stefani and Gomez, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Juanes, Adam Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, P!nk, Nate Ruess and Meghan Trainor.
According to Billboard, when Tranter heard the news of the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub, he decided to volunteer at The Center Orlando, an LGBT community center. “I called them and said, ‘If I fly up is there something for me to help with?’” Tranter explained. “They say, ‘We need as many hands as we can possibly get.’”
Enter Hands and the beautiful initiative behind it. Enjoy the song above.
