Melissa Etheridge is one of the few true LGBTQ icons out there right now (no, gaybaiting popstars don’t count), and she debuted a brand new song dedicated to the victims and survivors of the Orlando shooting.

During last week’s taping for public television’s Infinity Hall Live series, Etheridge played the tune, and here’s what she had to say about it:

“I think musicians…I think our job is to heal, our job is to put all those emotions in something and send it out and give it a place to where we can all…just breathe…and understand that we’re all humans and we all have a pulse.”

Watch her moving tribute below. If you’d like to donate to the victims of the Orlando shooting, here’s a good start.
