"The second I heard about this horrible tragedy where so many of my LGBTQ brothers and sisters lost their lives, I immediately got on a plane to Orlando to volunteer my help anyway I could," Tranter said in a statement about the heartfelt collaboration. "Putting this charity single together is just a way for me, and everyone involved, to keep volunteering our help and promote peace and love in the world."

On June 12, 49 victims were fatally shot at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, while another 53 were injured in the deadliest mass shooting in American history.
