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.
Last night was the broadcast of the first of a week of episodes of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon filmed at Universal Orlando.
To do his show’s first roadtrip right, Fallon recorded a new intro for the show that featured his journey to Orlando for the first show. Here is that special Orlando intro, which pays homage to Miami Vice:
As we noted a few weeks ago, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is taking its first road trip to Universal Orlando next week. Tickets to see the show tape went in a half hour, but you can still catch the musical guests.
The acts will perform at Universal Studios Music Plaza (where the Mardi Gras concerts happen) next Monday through Thursday at 9pm nightly. Performances will only be 1 or 2 songs long – not a full concert – but you may be able to catch your favorite act live, even if it’s briefly.
Scheduled performers include Jennifer Lopez on Monday, Jimmy Buffett on Tuesday, fun. on Wednesday and Pitbull on Thursday.
If you can watch the concerts if you have a park ticket for that day or a Universal Orlando annual pass (except Power Passes, which are blacked out for the summer).
