‘Pulse’ composition is a beautiful tribute to Orlando victims

Meka Beresford June 15, 2016

Two gay singers have released an emotional song to honour the victims of the attack in Orlando.

The haunting composition called ‘Feel My Pulse’ was released by Eli Lieb and Brandon Skeie. The gay singer-songwriters wrote an emotional message on Facebook to the loved ones of the victims. They urged their fans to donate to the Pulse victims Fund.

The pair were shocked and saddened by the attack and created the song to show their support to the victims, and LGBT communities across the world.

Eli said: “We have all been devastated by the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting. Brandon Skeie and I decided to write a song together to help show our support to the victims.”

Brandon spoke out about the attack on Facebook. He urged his fans to stand together and not hide their pride because of “self-loathing homophobic extremists” who are trying to tear them down.

He said: “At times like this we must stand together against adversity. It will take strength in masses to change the masses so let’s stand together as one & show how powerful a community can be.”

“The past few days have shaken all of us but they WILL NOT break us. Eli Lieb, Hillary Bernstein, Mimosa Blinsson & I decided to do what we do best in order to support those affected & those who lost their lives during the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando.”

“This song is called Pulse & represents all of us. We are one united body & we must stand together. Spread awareness & donate to the families affected with the links in the description of the video. BE HERE for each other.”

The moving video captures pride flags, candles and flowers across the US. It follows the four people whilst they create the song and video during the aftermath of the attacks.
