Three weeks after the deadly mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, more than a dozen stars have teamed up to sing on the charity single “Hands."
Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Gwen Stefani, Meghan Trainor, Selena Gomez, and Pink all offer their talents to the anthemic new song, whose lyrics point out how our hands can be tools of destruction — but also of love.
They’re joined by Halsey, Troye Sivan, Kacey Musgraves, Adam Lambert, Juanes, Jason Derulo, Tyler Glenn, Ty Herndon, Imagine Dragons, Mary Lambert, MNEK, Alex Newell, Prince Royce, Nate Ruess, RuPaul, and Jussie Smollett. Backing them all up is the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles.
“Hands” was written by the same songwriting team that penned Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”: Justin Tranter, Julia Michaels, and BloodPop. Sales of the single will benefit Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, and GLAAD.
