SOME of the biggest names in music have collaborated on a new charity single paying tribute to the victims of the Pulse massacre in Orlando.

The single called Hands is the result of a joint effort between GLAAD and Interscope Records.

“As we continue to mourn the crushing loss of 49 Americans, the majority of whom were Latinx and whose lives were lost to hate, we stand resolved in paying tribute to their memory, supporting the victims and families, and working together to achieve full acceptance once and for all,” Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD’s President and CEO, said in a statement.

The impressive line-up assembles everyone from Britney Spears to Gwen Stefani and Adam Lambert to Troye Sivian, to name just a few.

The U.S. proceeds of Hands will be distributed to the Equality Florida  Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Centre of Central Florida, and GLAAD. It can be purchased exclusively on iTunes.

“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,” writer and producer Justin Tranter said.

Broadway for Orlando released their own charity single in the form of Burt Bacharach’s What The World Needs Now.
