Christina Aguilera has announced that she will be donating the proceeds her new song, “Change,” to the victims of the Orlando shooting.
It’s been almost one week since the massacre in Pulse nightclub, with Christina extending her thoughts to the victims with this nice gesture.
“The horrific tragedy that occurred in Orlando continues to weigh heavily on my mind. I am sending so much love and so many prayers to the victims and their families,” the star, 35, wrote in a heartfelt letter posted late Thursday night on her website.
“Like so many, I want to help be part of the change this world needs to make it a beautiful inclusive place where humanity can love each other freely and passionately.”
The world has reeled in the aftermath of Omar Marteen’s shocking attack on the LGBT community that claimed the lives of 49 people.
It’s been a horrible week in the news for Florida.
Starting with Christina Grimmie’s murder last week, the news just seemed to get worse for the State.
Aguilera co-wrote the song with Fancy and Flo Reutter.
For the next three months, all of the proceeds from the track will be donated to the National Compassion Fund to directly benefit the Orlando shooting victims and their families.
The label and publisher will also donate their side of the proceeds.
It really is a beautiful single that tugs at the heart strings.
“Waiting for a change to set us free / Waiting for the day when you can be you and I can be me / Waiting for hope to come around / Waiting for the day when hate is lost and love is found / Waiting for a change,” she sings in the chorus.
