Britney Spears, J. Lo And More Join On Song For Orlando Victims

#ForThe49

Some of music's biggest names have joined together to honor the victims of the Orlando shooting massacre. 

Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Adam Lambert and Gwen Stefani are just some of the stars who offer their vocals to the Interscope track "Hands," released Tuesday in honor of the 49 victims who died in the June 12 mass shooting at LGBT nightclub Pulse on Latin night.

"When you hear the song it talks about hate being the driver here," GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told Billboard, "and that's important because we have to be able to identify what's driving these cruel acts in order to stop them. Artists using their platforms to accelerate acceptance is very powerful." 

Proceeds from the iTunes sales of the song will go to support Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida and GLAAD
