WATCH: Stoneman Douglas Students 'Shine' Music Video

Stoneman Douglas High School students rallied together in an inspirational way following the tragic school shooting that left 17 students and teachers dead. The Parkland community was reeling following the horrifying tragedy, but the students remained strong and did their best to inspire hope and promote a positive message during the dark time. That led to the release of an original song, “Shine.” The song was first performed live during a CNN Town Hall debate one week following the shooting.
Now, the Stoneman Douglas students have released a touching music video for the song that pays tribute to their fallen classmates and teachers.
“Shine” was written by Stoneman Douglas students Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña, and MSD alum Brittani Kagan collaborated with students and faculty to come together to create the video that honors the victims and shows the strength of the community as it rallies together.
The inspiring lyrics for the chorus read:

Cause you’re not gonna knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
But I promise we’ll be stronger and
We’re not gonna let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
But together we will shine the light
Whoah, we’re gonna shine

All proceeds from downloads and views of the video on YouTube go to Shine MSD, a non-profit created by MSD families to support programs that provide healing through the arts.
