Charity Song of the Month

DAN REYNOLDS & HANS ZIMMER, "Skipping Stones," 2018

Posted on July 13, 2018

Dan Reynolds, the Mormon-raised lead singer for Imagine Dragons, has been confronting the more hateful, less welcoming aspects of his religious past in the new documentary Believer. One of the topics is the Mormon Church's mean-spirited stance on LGBTQ issues. Reynolds is using new song "Skipping Stones," written with Hans Zimmer (The Lion King, Gladiator, The Dark Knight) to push faith-oriented persons to move past lip service and vague platitudes of "love" and to "give true validity and fully embrace and support diverse sexual orientations." Proceeds from the new single will support the LOVELOUD Foundation. Buy it here. — Aaron Brophy
