Melissa Etheridge releases tribute song to victims of Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando

in Music

Downtown Orlando

The song Pulse was uploaded to SoundCloud on Wednesday with plans to have the single available for purchase soon.  All proceeds from the sale of the song will be donated to a charity supporting the LGBT community.

The poignant and touching tune promotes love and fighting for what we love. With lyrics like, “Everybody’s got a pulse. . . Love will always win because underneath the skin, everybody’s got a pulse” the song is a perfect tribute to match the mission that the owners of the Pulse nightclub continue to live.

On writing about the reason for releasing the song, Melissa told Rolling Stone, “I feel called to speak; to do what musicians do. We’ve been the town criers for hundreds of years. We’re mirrors of society. We want to try to make sense. We want to try to heal. We want to bring some meaning, some purpose. We also want to put it down forever in history. That’s how I’m coping.”
