Miley Cyrus is asking her fans to support the “powerful message of change” on the just-released Parkland student charity single “Shine”.
The “Younger Now” singer took to Twitter on Friday to encourage her “Smilers” to listen to the theme song for the “March For Our Lives” demonstration, written by two survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, Sawyer Garrity, 16, and Andrea Peña, 15.
“Shine” was released a day after students at more than 3,000 schools across the United States staged a walkout to protest gun violence.
On March 24, hundreds of thousands are expected to descend upon Washington for the “March For Our Lives” demonstration. The march is intended to shine a light on school safety and common-sense gun law legislation after 14 students and three teachers were killed by a man wielding a military-style semi-automatic AR-15 rifle on February 14 in Parkland, Florida.
Proceeds from the downloaded sales of the track will be donated to the SHINE MSD Fund at the Broward Education Foundation, a non-profit that will help support the victims and their families through community mental health and arts programs.
The students previously performed the song at the CNN town hall one week after the shooting.
Listen to the song below and download it from iTunes and other major streaming services to support the movement.
