Hans Zimmer Records Composition to Benefit Aurora Shooting Victims

     July 27, 2012


We’re all still reeling from the tragedy that struck Aurora, Colorado last weekend, none moreso than the victims and family members affected by the senseless crime.  Hans Zimmer, who composed the score for The Dark Knight Rises, has now written and recorded a new composition titled “Aurora.” Here’s what Zimmer had to say about the track on his Facebook page:

“Aurora” is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families.

100% of the proceeds from the track will be donated to the Aurora Victim Relief organization.  It’s a moving composition, and it provides film lovers like us an easy opportunity to pay tribute to those that lost their lives simply for going to the movies.  The track will be up on iTunes shortly, but for now you can head over to this page to download the composition and make a donation.  Even if it’s just 10 cents, every little bit helps.
