TIGERBEAT: A new album protesting gun violence includes students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school performing the original song, ‘Shine.’

The students of Parkland, Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are raising their voices for good.

In February, the lives of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students were changed forever when an active shooter took the lives of 17 students and staff within the school. Since then, the survivors have launched the March For Our Lives, and been featured on various talk shows and awards shows to spread their positive message.

It was recently announced that, in partnership with nonprofit organization Little Village Foundation, a group of students from the high school are set to release an album on October 5th called, “Raise Your Voice: The Sound of Student Protest.” The 11-track album will feature a mix of new songs and spoken-word pieces performed by the student of the high school and all proceeds from the album will be donated to the nonprofit organization Everytown for Gun Safety.

Earlier this summer, some of the students that will be featured on the album performed at the Tony Awards, check out their powerful performance:
