Britney Spears, Pink, Selena Gomez Join 'Hands' for Orlando: How the All-Star Song Came to Life - Billboard.com

 

 

 

Jennifer LopezGwen StefaniJason DeruloMeghan TrainorJuanesPink,Mary J. BligeSelena Gomez and Britney Spears are among 24 artists featured on a new recording to raise money for victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre.

 

 

The all-star release, "Hands" -- a charity single from Interscope Records with support from GLAAD -- was conceived by hit songwriter Justin Tranter, co-writer of Justin Bieber's "Sorry" and hits for Gomez, DNCEFall Out Boy and Stefani. The June 12 slaughter at the gay nightclub in Orlando, which killed 49 people and injured 53, is the most deadly mass shooting in American history and the deadliest act of violence against the LGBT community. Funds from the song will aid families with medical care, counseling and will also be used for education.....

 

 

Aligning with Interscope for the release, Tranter, GLAAD and Interscope president of A&R Aaron Bay-Schuck put the word out that a fundraiser was in the works. Within days artists from all spheres of the business had lined up -- also among them Halsey,Ty Herndon, Dan Reynolds of Imagine DragonsAdam Lambert, The Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, MNEKAlex NewellMary LambertPrince RoyceJussie SmollettNate Ruess and RuPaul -- all recording separately from their homes, local studios, touring locations or wherever they happened to be at that moment.

"We assigned everybody what we thought would be the best part for their voice," Tranter says, "and we asked them all to sing an additional part, just in case. But everybody got it done in time so we ended up with extra vocals."

Thank you so much, dear carter. Its so beautiful message. Seriously, I adore this kind of union of artists - singers with the intention for the good and right thing.

I mean, to honor and pay tribute to the memory of someone. It’s unusually human and merciful.

Right the first time I fell in love with "Hands". And these words, wow, they are gorgeous. It touched me, brought tears to my eyes. For these treasures I’m very glad, just grateful. Because music, across the world, nationalities, cultures and in the mix of foreign languages, as the only force gives understanding and a sense of belonging.

PS: And I love the cover image. Seriously and no doubt it’s the perfect gesture. I think
someone was inspired by the "Creation of Adam" by Michelangelo Buonarroti in the Sistine Chapel, but rightly so.

I think the connection is truly successful.

No doubt some of the recognition is because of Adams high profile on LGBTQ issues, but a headline is a headline is a headline

 

The good news these days seem continually... So happy for him! :D

I'm soo late for everything these days. Sometimes I just hate my work for taking so much of my time and energy. 

 

So I heard this song just now and I found it very, very touching and heart-warming - the lyrics are so beautiful, the production is great, but the most important thing is how many people felt like they needed to do something  :wub:  (or, in their case, sing something). And also the article from Huff Post is almost as moving as the song, reading about how they all were in different places and still managed to record it on time... I was suppose to wait until the morning to buy it, but I can't wait so many hours.

Just now was able to really listen with headphones and all. It's a lovely song. A bit too "mixed" with so many different voices but I get that it's not suppose to be "a normal song". I liked the parts where they sing "a milliion hands can...". And the whole song kind seems to rise to another level after Adam's part. :)

Hi 2015!

No wonder, because he has such a wonderful voice and a huge vocal range, incredible. There are songs that I can't believe Adam is singing, because don't hear that there's a his magic "standard". I'll try to help you. I really hear him at 2:50, he sings: "Hands," and then at 2:55 with such a ho-u ho o (don't worry, I don't mean Santa Claus), then no doubt that you didn't find him, he sings in the chorus. It takes repeated listening, I suggest headphones, the experience is more significant, at least for me. Today I listened to that song all night, I turned it around and around. I don't know when I'll have enough. Seriously! It's so beautiful. But I have to take a break, because when I hear it, I can't help to myself and I cry, clutching my heart. Then I have puffy eyes and look like a mole in the sun.

I finally got around to buying this song, and it really caught my attention, even from the opening notes. This is going to be the perfect lyrical dance to choreograph to for my students this year :) What a story to tell. It reminds me a bit of "We Are the World" with how some of the voices really stood out over others. I usually don't like songs that have a ton of artists in them, but this one is really good.

It was my first thought when I heard this song. Not only because of the voices but its purpose too.

It reminded me of WATW also but I was thinking how weak and whiney the vocals are on this song compared to how powerful they were on WATW. No comparison. Not a fan of the song but glad Adam was a part of it because it was for a good cause.
