Some excerpts from the full article/press release via Billboard:

"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, DNCE, Fall 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."

" "Hands" arrives tonight on iTunes. Proceeds will be distributed by Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida and GLAAD."

" "When you hear the song it talks about hate being the driver here," she says, "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." "

"In Los Angeles "Interscope let us use their studio," he notes. "Mary J. Blige recorded in New Orleans. Britney Spears in Thousand Oaks, I think. Pink in Santa Barbara. MNEK recorded at home in London. Selena recorded in her studio bus. Dan Reynolds recorded in his home. Adam Lambert was in Luxembourg. Ty Herndon the country star was in Spain. Kacey Musgraves, Nashville. Everyone just got it done." "

BTW just visited ATOP and saw Adam's new official video for WTTS. He produced it himself. It's really good and includes Lskeh. He also wrote a LONG essay on why he did this independent video. He expresses so many personal feelings. It's incredible. Admins, please post the video and essay here!!!!! :)))

I couldn't detect Adam & wish he could have sung a larger part, but I'm sure all other fans feel the same about their fave artists. I like the idea, but it's not quite on the same level as We Are the World, hard to do on short notice when artists are all over the world.

The song is great but ... could have included more male solos instead of so many females. I know ADAM is in the background but not as easy to pick out ... otherwise ... it is a great song!! JMO
