Pop star Christina Aguilera has released a new song, "Change," following Sunday's mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub.

The singer posted a lyric video of the song and a statement on her website on Thursday, which said that she wants to be a part of the change the world needs to be more inclusive.

The song features lyrics about waiting for hope and change and "waiting for the day when hate is lost and love is found." The statement says proceeds from U.S. downloads through Sept. 14 will go to the National Compassion Fund to benefit the victims and their families.
