Two student survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland have released a song inspired by the tragedy that took place on campus on Feb. 14, when a 19-year-old gunman entered the school and opened fire, killing 17 individuals.
"[After the shooting], writing this song was the only thing that gave us an outlet to heal," says a video description via Youtube. "It was an honor to perform at the CNN Town Hall a week after the shooting to 7,000 people in our community and millions watching at home."
All proceeds for views, streams, and downloads of "SHINE" by students Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña, will go to the Shine MSD non-profit, through the Broward Education Fund, to benefit the victims and their families and to provide mental health programs to heal through the arts.
"This song is dedicated in loving memory of the 17 victims," the description says.
