Following the mass shooting at an Orlando LGBT nightclub, that so far has left 50 people dead & another 50 injured, the music community as a whole has come together to offer their support for the victims & their families.
Just now catching up on the tragedy in Orlando… Sickening. Praying.

Tweeting about this kind of tragedy feels so insignificant. But let's all pray for Orlando FL today. And the world. I'm in disbelief.

In honor of those in #Orlando, don't run. Don't hide. Don't fear. And never hate. Be 100% yourself in spite of the ass holes in this world.
