Last Sunday was the one month anniversary of one of the biggest tragedies and loss of life in history. The Orlando shootings claimed the lives of 49 people and injured many more.
‘Hands’ is a single being released to raise funds for the support networks helping the victims, their families and friends. The lyric video which has been released is truly moving and one of the most powerful videos I have seen in a long time.
The lyrics “a million hands can build a wall, a million hands can break it down” resonates with so many situations in current culture from religion to equality. You can read into th lyrics in whatever way you see fit but for me it is that we can all work together to make the place we live better, a sentiment that was also put across in previous charity single ‘We Are The World’.
The video not only features some of the singers and popstars who took part in the recording for Interscope Records but also many digital creators from around the world include YouTube and Snapchat stars. But the most influential people in the video are the 3 survivors of the Pulse Nightclub shootings Angel, Patience and Tiara.
Just take a look at this video and try tell me that it is not moving, emotional, powerful and sending a positive message of everyone standing together makes for a better world.
