As more and more people are despairing at the current state of the world, Guns N’ Roses have come out to stand with the victims of the Orlando Pulse attacks last month.
The band released a video on their social media to show solidarity and are showing themselves to be compassionate as well as brutal and classic hard rock, and showing the victims’ family the event is anything but forgotten as it is reaching the end of its media attention.
Watch the video below and continue to show your support as GNR are:
California punk/hardcore band Stay Wild have released a track, Blossom, to raise funds for the victims of yesterday’s attacks.
The track will be available on their Bandcamp here on a “pay what you want” basis, with all proceeds going to the families of the near-100 victims of the disaster. On top of this, their label Panic State Records have said that they will donate $10 of every “Stay Wild: Feminist” shirt they sell to the cause also (available HERE).
Please donate whatever you can, whether you like the song or not, to help these people cover all the costs surrounding premature deaths to make this hard time just a little less crushing. Thank you in advance.
Ex-Voice contestant and YouTube star Christina Grimmie has lost her battle to survive after a gunman attacked her after a show in Orlando, Florida in the early hours of this morning.
The singer, aged just 22, had performed just before Before You Exit in Plaza Live in the town, and went out with them to sign autographs after the show when the gunman attacked at around 22.45 local time. Reports have said the attacker walked towards Grimmie and shot her point blank, before her brother tackled him to the ground. The attacker then took his own life also.
Just hours earlier, she posted a video to Facebook to invite her fans to the performance:
Our thoughts are with her family and fanbase at this time.
