Influential Latino musicians have taken part in several musical tributes, and the proceeds of all these songs will go to victims and families of the June 12 massacre in Orlando, the nation's deadliest mass shotting at the gay nightclub Pulse. The shooting took place on "Latin Night" and the majority of the victims were Hispanic.
"Hands," which features prominent artists like Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Juanes and Prince Royce, is available now on iTunes. The proceeds for "Hands" will benefit the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
The song also includes RuPaul, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, Mary J. Blige and Britney Spears.
Four days after the shooting, Colombian-American singer Christine Aguilera co-wrote a track called "Change" dedicated to the victims. All proceeds for the song will go to the the National Compassion Fund, which was established to distribute donations to victims of mass homophobic, transphobic, racist or misogynistic crimes.
Jennifer Lopez is one of the producers of a second tribute, along with "Hamilton" creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, which they teased online Monday.
Their song, "Love Make the World Go Round," will donate all proceeds to the Hispanic Federation, which is helping victims and families and coordinating bicultural and bilingual services, including mental health therapy, counseling and financial assistance.
