Music industry heavyweights such as Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Juanes, P!nk, Mary J. Blige, Selena Gomez, and Britney Spears are among 24 artists featured on “Hands,” a new single that has been released by Interscope Records to benefit the victims of the Pulse shooting last month.
The all-star release was conceived by hit songwriter Justin Tranter, who along with GLAAD and Interscope president of A&R Aaron Bay-Schuck put the word out that a fundraiser was in the works.
The artists all recorded their parts separately from their homes, local studios, touring locations, or wherever they happened to be at that moment.
Spears opens the song with the line, “Can hold a gun or a hold a heart.” RuPaul is heard quietly toward the end, saying “take my hand baby.”
Artists in between also include Halsey, Ty Herndon, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, Adam Lambert, The Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, MNEK, Alex Newell, Mary Lambert, Prince Royce, Jussie Smollett, and Nate Ruess.
