Charity Song of the Month

LANA DEL REY, "Looking For America," 2019

Posted on September 3, 2019

Noir-pop star Lana Del Rey has dedicated the proceeds from her new song "Looking For America" to three separate mass gun shooting victims funds, the Gilroy Garlic Festival Victims Relief Fund, the El Paso Community Foundation Victims' Relief Fund, and the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund. In the song Del Rey sings, "I’m still looking for my own version of America/ One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly/ No bombs in the sky." The three separate shooting events happened in late July and early August, inspiring her to create the anti-gun violence song. Buy it here. — Aaron Brophy
