Christina Aguilera is honoring the victims of the Orlando shooting with an emotional new single “Change.” Released late Thursday night, the song is dedicated to those who lost their lives at the Pulse nightclub shooting in Florida last weekend.

"Waiting for a change to set us free. Waiting for the day when you can be you and I can be me. Waiting for hope to come around. Waiting for the day when hate is lost and love is found,” the big-voiced songstress sings in the ballad, which she co-wrote with Fancy Hagood and Flo Reutter.

The 35-year-old announced that until Sept. 14, all proceeds from the single will be donated to the National Compassion Fund to help the victims of the shooting as well as their families.

"The horrific tragedy that occurred in Orlando continues to weigh heavily on my mind. I am sending so much love and so many prayers to the victims and their families," the Voice coach wrote on her website. "Like so many, I want to help be part of the change this world needs to make it a beautiful inclusive place where humanity can love each other freely and passionately."
